well the rear isnt any different than a normal ranger. the front i would think you wouldnt have to worry about the Tbars since your getting rid of them... so i assume it would be like bagging any other truck?

well u have to make a bracket to hold the upper bag but the lower arms u can probably get away with just drillin a hole to hold the bottom bag (im just assuming) but regardless you have to z the frame and get a new tranny x member go to illsuivefabrications.com he makes the x member. Or u can do a yota clip or mustang 2 clip upfront if u wanna go crazy.

^was here...but left. He's not bagged, he's coil-overed.


All said earlier in the thread is correct. Click the link Casper98 posted earlier. If it were me and I didn't have a coil-spring 2wd frame available anywhere locally to swap underneeth the truck, I'd be Z-ing the front frame and fabing up some bag mounts and a new x-member. Bottom line...wrong truck to start off with if your goal is to be low. You got a 4x4 without an axle or tcase.


You'll lay crossmember if you just throw in bags which mean hte valence is like 4" above the ground. Trans x-member wouldn't be be needed because he won't be laying rail but illusive doesn't offer anything for the torsion bar trucks(last time I checked). And they don't just unbolt....cut and weld is a must. Custom/modified control arms would help for the ride height and balljoint angles. It'll basically look like a 4/5 coilspring truck when "laid out".

Figure he could run one of illusive's in-frame tubular or square x-members. But gotta get the t-bar key holder junk off the frame first for it to fit. But if an x-member needs on the truck, he'll already be cutting that crap out anyway.

But still...Z the frame. it's the only way you'll be satisfied with the truck. Only way you'll "lay frame".

i came across a guy that was completely laying frame on an 04' Ranger Edge he said he had to put the XLT cross member on(the one under the engine) and he custom fabricated an upper and lower control arm set up in the front. the rear he said was just like any other ranger
