2003 4x4 lift question

i have a 2003 4x4 and i have the tbars cranked a little bit and 265s on it now but was wanting to go to 33s this summer found this kit online does anyone else have this kit and if so what do you think of it? i have heard not to use the torsion keys and i was wondering why not what is so bad about them

all your front end components will **** out faster and the ride sucks. just get a body lift, its even cheaper than that


btw, 265 is the width of the tire, nothing to do with the height so that doesn't really tell anything.

Plus the pre-keys only give lift to the 2006+ rangers.. that came sitting lower than the 2005 and below I believe. You would be wasting your money.

Like "LoL Wut" said.... get a body lift for like $200, and then put 33's on it.

those are different from the pre-keys they're actual "lift keys"

pre-keys are just 98-05 keys in an 06+ but still, that kit isn't worth the money at all. maybe just the AAL
