2000 xlt lift?

I've done some searching on the interwebs about what kind of lifts are out there for my truck. Anyone know of something different than the fabtech lift systems? Or does anyone have one of them, like the 2.5 or the 5.5? Maybe just the 3 inch lift spindles? I'm hoping to get it up enough to clear 31-33 BFG A/T's.

Thanks for the help.

Whoops.. too early in the AM.. Yeah, its only got coils.

Do you like it better with the 5.5? The kit seems a wee bit pricey, and I've heard mixed things about fagtech. Does the quality make it worth the price?

3" spindles and Belltech 6400 shackles should clear those 31's nicely.

But the spindles dont add any travel at all. And there isn't much there to begin with. Hitting bumpstops going over railroad tracks is pathetic in a truck...

Anyone have an idea of about how tall it would be with spindles, shackles, and 31's? As tall as a t-bar cranked 4wd? I'm hoping to get it even with a full size, say like a F250, or 2500 GM. Tall for a ranger, but not tall for a truck? Or would the 5.5 kit get me there?

My 2003 XLT coil spring Ranger.
https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ly-lifted.html


Did this a month ago. I am running 30's right now. I could easily run 31's with the lift. I have spindles, shackles and add-a-leafs.

I parked beside a 2004 fx4 level 2 yesterday at wally world, and I was ever so slightly taller than him.

i've had my spindles on for about 3 years now and it cleared 31's no problem and was sitting at a 4x4's hight. lance on this forum has the 5.5 kit and it looks pretty nice. but everytime he jumps his truck the front end bounces and does about 3-4 hops after it lands. if you cant afford the camburg or dixon bros kit then go ahead and buy the 5.5.

I was going to go high, but seeing as it is the daily, and it has to tow the race car... I'll just do a spindle. However.. If I come across another cheap one its getting all camburg parts... I went to their site and didnt leave untill I needed a towel...
