2003 2wd Lift

Hey guys. my dad has an 03 2wd ext. cab. It's stock right now, and he wants to make it the same height as the 4wd Ranger's. He wants to put bigger tires, about 31's on it. I was thinking blocks in the back, with a leveling kit, but I can't find anything on a leveling kit. I figured his next bet would be a body lift, then a suspension lift, because I know those are the most expensive. I know a lot about Dodges, but not Ford's lol. So, let me know what you guys think would be the most effective way to do this. Thanks.

well since posting this I have been reading on here and found that 31x10.5 will fit just fine, and me and Dad were looking at his truck and see that it might rub a little bit, but not terribly. Yes, it is a Coil front end.

Are you wanting to lift it or keep it at stock height and just run 31's?

31's no lift


31's body lift

He wants it to be about as tall as the 4WD Ranger's. So, basically lift it 3-4 inches. What size tires are you running?

he just looked at your pics and said that looks perfect. Thanks a lot!

No problem. I'm running 31x10.5x15. Next tire will be a 32" with a little bit more lift when these wear out. If you ever want to see it or need some help with stuff let me know . Your only like 15 minutes from me.

Do you have any rubbing at all? Also, what BL do you have?

Appreciate it. My uncle owns a body shop in Bargersville, so I am around there quite a bit.

No I have no rubbing. I have the Performance Accessories body lift but the Summit brand one will work.
