They don't have it listed, but they do make them. Call around to get part numbers and quotes.

I got spindles and long add a leaves for 450, and I over paid. Spindles shouldn't be much more than 300-350 alone.

Ditto. 3" spindle lift and I made custom springs (out of two sets of Ranger springs), fabbed longer blocks, and lift shackles for the rear.

Here's some relevant topics on how I did mine:

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ead.php?t=4821

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ead.php?t=6064

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ead.php?t=5968

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ead.php?t=7200

https://www.ranger-forums.com/forum2...ead.php?t=5850

And a pic of my rear axle (31 spline FX4 with reclocked shock mounts that don't stick down!)



In the following picture you can see the spring pack with the extra leaf from another Ranger spring pack (4 leaves plus the "overload") as well as the custom blocks. I used a cast Ranger block, and had it specially welded to a 2" piece of carbon steel to make the new block



IF you use a big lift block, you WILL need traction bars. I have the James Duff bars that mount over the axle and they help a LOT.

the RCD kit is a 6" lift... Here's the link:

Will I need glass fenders with this kit if i run 35s mostly on the road and no mudding?

Channing, that RCD kit is made for coil sprung Rangers, not Edges that use torsion bar suspensions. RCD only makes a 4x4 kit compatible with Edges/Xl/Xlt due to the fact that it replaces everything anyway, but they don't make a kit for a 2x4 Edge. Not sure if you're 4wd or not but if you aren't that kit won't work.

John you're a fabrication pimp.

EDIT: And to run 35's on a 2x4, you would need fiberglass if you don't want to rub. If you are a 4x4 and you get that RCD kit for Edges, then you would be fine.

I am 2wd, so I could get the RCD kit for a 4wd ranger, instead. But I would still need glass fenders for it. Right?

if it weren't for your traction bars, john, i would imagine you would be having alot of slippage with that much blocks...

edit: i see you already noted that!

I agree, Christian.

And I run 35's with no rubbing on a 4x2 with my spindles, home-fabbed rear, and some torsion crank. And I offroad it HARD.
