there is no such thing. there is a:

4" superlift ranging around $1500 + new front driveshaft

then

5.5" RCD lift requires welding ranging $2100+, + new driveshaft in front

then
3" body lift for like $200

do a search there is TONS of info on all these. and i think there was a thread started on the suspension lifts just the other day



EDIT: bloody hell i just noticed you have a 3.0L so you probly arnt 4x4 listen to Him down there. you want lift spindles in the front and lift shackels and AAL in the rear

do a search for fabtech or doetsch spindles... www.4wheelparts.com and www.suspensionmax.com are good placed to buy... for the rear lift search for AAL and chevy shackels... both fabtech and procomp (same as doetsch) make kits for our trucks that include everything you will need for the lift for 600.00 to around 700.00

FordGurl....A girl in a Ford truck...thats a beautiful thing. lol

Anyways, If you're looking for a suspension lift over a body lift, I think there's a couple companies that make em for 2wd Rangers but I'm honestly not sure what they are. Redneckstone will prolly be able to tell ya. I'm sure he'll chime in.

the kits you are seeing for up to 2003 will work on 04+ as well

X2 2001-2003 = 2001-2007 but there is a difference between Edge spindles and and XLT so watch out for that. you are looking at about $250-$350 for spindle/block kits.

Blocks in the rear will work, but I dont think anyone here will recommend them. AAL ane chev shackles is where it's at
