2011 ranger 2wd lift

hey so i am new to this site and just recently purchased a 2011 ranger 2wd with front coil springs. ive been doing a lot of research and it seems there arent many products for newer rangers but what i am looking at doing is 4" lift spindles in the front and 2" rear add a leafs in the back with new rancho shocks all around for lifted applications. would this combination work? and would i need to install anything else?

Try Fabtech Motorsports, they have a few packages for coil sprung rangers. More options for you than me I have a sport with torsion bars.

I just went down the rancho road and they don't make front shocks for what your wanting to do. In fact they don't make front shocks for a 4x2 front coil ranger. Only the Torsion suspension. Rear shocks are not a problem thow. Just found out rough country makes shocks for a variety of vehicles in difrent lift heights. Best of luck

you will run into the ABS sensor size issue as your 2011, the 4" spindles only fit up to 2009 i believe. you will also not like how stiff ranchos are, i hated mine and went bilstein while it was a DD, then went to fox when it was for the sand.

also, for 2" rear, use a shackkle, not an add-a-leaf. add-a-leaf's sag, and give a harsh ride, where as shackles actually can improve the ride.

Doetsch makes a 3" spindle that will work for you. also the 4" spindles only give you 3.75" lift.

100% agree. Shackles are the way to go if you can. I'm not a fan of eBay but there are some kits that should come with everything you need on there.
