2009 Ranger Lift

I'm new to all this. I am looking to lift my truck in a cheep way. I own a vehicle wrap company and want my truck to stand out more. Basically I want to lift my truck for looks.

What ways can this be done without spending a lot of money.

I have a 2009 Ford Ranger 4WD

Cheapest way is a body lift.

You might need a few little things like a different fuel tube extension but the rest of that kit will work on your 09.

No, a ton of members run body lifts and it looks fine. If you have a hitch on it you'll either need to remove it or cut 3" out of it and reweld it to move it up. Same with exhaust. I had a body lift on my ranger and it was great.

I'll take everyones advice on this. What about tires? Would you recommend getting bigger ones or would I be able to get by with my stock ones.

Defintily go bigger, thats the whole point of lifting. I would swap in a set of 07 or older keys (after 08 they reindexed the keys so the truck sits lower in the front) and then run 33s.

So your saying still do the body lift and also put new keys in. Do I then need spacers in the rear. Do you think I would be able to get away with my stock tires now for a little bit with the bl or will that look stupid

Eh yeah I think it looks pretty funny. You can swap in the older rear blocks as well, I think they're a inch taller or something like that.
