Icon5 Adrenaline 3 inch lift?

Anyone have any experience with them? Typical kit comes with front keys and rear blocks,u bolts etc. I have a 08 4x4 ranger.

Forget buying a kit with "lift keys"
Get yourself some factory keys from an 07 or earlier. The lift keys are indexed so extreme that their low point is close to as high as you want to go. Factory keys from a 98-07 will be able to get you plenty of lift. Go any higher than that and you'll be killing your ball joints and cv joints.

As for rear, get shackles or Explorer springs. You can also swap out your factory block for a 98-07 and gain an inch there, but too high on blocks will get you more axle wrap, which you don't want, either.

Thanks for the quick replys guys. I have cranked my stock ones up so Im not sitting like a mini van, but I want maybe 1 more inch or so. Im using the truck for work (forestry) so having it low is just not an option.

Get some 98-07 keys then. You'll be all set.

I've done what these guys are recommending. It's not hard to do. Took me and a buddy 4-5 hours and that included a slurpee run and both front and rear install.
