Camburg lift

Has anyone had experience with the entry level 6.0 kit from Camburg? I have a 2003 edge and from what I understand the Fabtech kit isn't very good. I was told by an offroad shop to go with Camburg if I wanted a quality lift.

Anyone have any info on this?

yes on all counts.

Camburg turns out an excellent product, no matter what the system you go with is. However, you're gonna be shelling out the $$ for it. There are alternatives, you just need to consider your application and what you're really gonna do with you truck.

if it's disco... it may be worth it to save your money and just go with the fabtech unit. It does what it's supposed to do. They get a bad rep because of guys that think they're buying a performance system and go break their parts off road.

Fabtech is a lift kit, camburg is performance suspension which also lifts it.

I highly recommend the camburg if you will be offroading.

Both kits come with all the necessary parts to lift your Ranger 6 inches.

Not a bad price...but the blue ranger on the page doesn't look like it has 6in of lift. Whats the price for a 4x4 lift?

i have an '03 ranger edge and just installed the camburg 6.0 performance kit. I highly recommend it over the spindles from fabtech which i also previously had, but it is costly.
