so take out one of the 2" blocks in the back. i dont think theres anything else you can do for the front. those keys you get from ebay wont do anything more than crank the tbars.

just went and measured from the lip of the rim to the edge of the wheelwell and i guess being that my truck was previously wrecked the passenger side is one inch lower than the drivers side...Drivers side front is sitting @ 31inches passenger side front is 32
rear drivers is 34 and 1/4 and rear pass is 35 1/4 iam trying to clear 34 inch tires....keep in mind that those measurments are from the lip of the wheel not from the ground...

how mush do those keys from ebay actually lift you....and i know that those keys only let u crank the bolt more because they are indexed at a different degree from factory.....iam going to shim the drivers side up th get it level with the passenger side....

i dont no about thoes new keys....but there is no way to lift the front 2 inches on a 01. If you had coils, u could put spacers in, but you dont, lowest you can buy is a super lift and thats 4 inches and over $1,500

body lift?

nvm, a body lift wouldn't look right.

dont keep them cranked all the way up, people have had issues with the bars being worn out and it will also make the ball joints wear out faster.

I think all rangers tend to lean on the driver side w/ the weight of the gas tank, steering stuff, etc...
