4" Superlift Question for a 93-97

Anybody have this kit? do you like it? better ride quality?

Im looking to get a lift for my girlfriends 1994 Ranger 4x4 and its a plus that 4 wheelparts has this kit on sale but Im weary of ordering from them again...

but anyways , hard to install? Im more than likely going to be doing this by myself due to my lack of friends

Im looking probably to run 33's if not i can put my 32's on it.


Any info would be appreciated

-Adam

on my '04 it rode about like it did stock not much better or worse. It was easy to install but I did it with a group of friends and we all just kind of dug in. Did the body lift and the suspension lift from late friday night to early sat morning.

I would try to get some kind of extra hands in there. A sencond brain is also good for trouble shooting if this is your first lift.

I had that feeling that's why I didn't really go into detail on the install.

if i was closser i would help you since i need to learn to do my lift. I mean i could come down and let the girl watch and help us. Would have to know when you were guna do it. it should be that hard to do. you will need to get her a once piece drive shaft it will be easier than trying to screw with the 2 piece

The level II should have a 1 piece driveshaft. I put the kit on my 01 back in the day... phenomenal kit. I think the ride is great and the stance is just awesome with 32s or 33s. It's a VERY strong kit and it's really not hard to do yourself either. I did it by myself with no previous experience and hand tools in 2 days. If you've got air tools you could knock that down to a couple hours pretty easy. I'd reccommend the Superlift over the RCD kit any day of the week. You won't be disappointed!

The only problem with lifting the TTB rangers is the steering will become somewhat vague/more play in it, its not bad, it will take some getting use to after the install. Other than that I have no problems with my kit, which is the 5.5" and its not necessary to replace the driveshaft in the TTB models after a suspension lift.

PICS

5.5" SL w/3" BL 35" tires...

He cant put 35's on that truck with just a 4" lift...ITS NOT A 98+ RANGER...ITS A TTB suspension 93-97

"Turd" put the year of her truck in the original post, your going to get conflicting answers to your question.

with the 4" lift there isn't a great difference in stability of the truck? i mean in curves or off roading it doesn't get any unstable to drive?.

anyone got a pic with the lift and stock size tires? or >31's ? i cant really afford loosing towing power cause i cant change the transmission setup really....

You saying he can't run 35"s on the 94 with that SL ? I could run 35's on my 93 with just a BL and coil spacers.

dude sea-bass.

i took off my stupid valence so im running just the top bumper and i posted pictures on the exterior forum and everyone hated it.

i think your truck looks good with just the bumper and no plastics. makes it look that much bigger.
