Icon10 do you own this truck or no who does?

i was on cardomain last night and i saw this ranger. he has superlift and pa 3" body lift. he says he got 7" out of the superlift. if you own this truck and are on the forum, explain to me how you got the 7"'s on the superlift. i have been thinking how this would be posible but can't figure it out. someone please tell me. here is the direct link. http://www.cardomain.com/ride/2609199
by the way: this truck is awsome. exactly the way mine will be set up.

He says he double add-a-leaf(the superlift kit uses drop shackles I believe) and then he prolly cranked the torsion bars. Or he's just full of it

yea. but he says he got 7" from the superlift. and in the title he says he has 10" of lift. so that means there is 4" of superlift and 3" somewhere else. then there is the bodylift. i know they don't make a 7" superlift.

He might of gotten a extra couple of inches with cranking the bars, but no where close to 7". He's BSing on that part.

The add-a-leaf is on top of the superlift, and I'm pretty sure that you can crank the torsion bars also. That would be pretty close to the extra 3"

I think he's full of it, he probably got a bit by cranking the bars but the front of that truck doesn't really sit all that high.

3-4" actually haha


he doesn't sit that much higher, or any higher at all than any other double lifted truck on here


i bet the 10" came from
3" Body
4" Superlift + aal, maybe bigger block and crank.. i can see 5" maybe
Tires... but 31s to 35s only gives you 2"

here is my guess

3 inch body lift
4 inch suspension lift
3 inch keys

I'm going with the key idea because it looks like his cv's are at some pretty extreme angles.

but in his head line it says he has 10" of lift.
this is where it says that he has 10". http://www.cardomain.com/MakeModel/F.../all/2001/2004
scroll down until you see it. it says "02 FX4 Ranger with 10"s of lift on 35's w/ 4.88's"

The keys do the EXACT same thing as cranking the bars. So it would be 2" MAX
