I was just wondering because I had never seen a drop bracket like that and was wondering if someone came out with a new kit or something.

I'll try searching that.

Can't help ya shipping to canada..

but your only options are the 4" superlift and the 5" RCD which requires downgrading the brakes to 02 and older size rotors. The superlift you only need the superlift as it has provisions for both brake sizes.

I think the calipers are the same size but just have different piston setup so you only need to change the rotors.

you'll need 02 and older rotors and that's it on your 06. i'd go ahead and throw in new pads for the hell of it so both parts can 'bed' into eachother. calipers are the same. Search about the RCD kit...there's some things you really should do before installing it.

Make sure that you're getting the 4wd RCD kit too... I think there's a 2wd kit floating around out there too.

Also gonna confirm that the calipers are the same, but you'll need to get the smaller 2002 rotors, and when replacing your rotors, it's good practice to get new pads also.

depends on what you want to do with your truck, all the options on the front page will work on your truck, weigh the options and price and go from there.

The basics: the ranger has nice big wheel wells that can fit 33x10.5 or 32x11.5 inch tires on stock or 15x8in wheels, this is a nice cheap way to get more under axel clearance.
The result:
This truck has the perfect wheels, tires, and stance.

Does anyone know whose truck this is.

I want my truck to look like that! (except stock front bumper)

He was a Member on ORR where I grabbed a lot of the pictures for. He sold the truck long ago and has a 150 now.

I was thinking of running the stock wheels with bigger tires if and when I get the superlift kit.

Are there any provisions with the superlift kit for wheel backspacing? I've seen guys with stock wheels and a superlift, but I wonder if they recommend anything different.

Also, I've cranked my t-bars already. So when I get the superlift, will I need to crank the t-bars to stock? Or will the cranked t-bars act as a 'leveling kit" for the lift?

Another question regarding lifts in general.

I've heard from a couple people that there is power loss when you lift a truck, now I can see maybe a little loss. But how much is there really? Have any of you guys with lifts noticed any power loss?

Any fuel mileage difference?
