Getting More Lift

Currently I have a 3" body and a 3" suspension is there any other way to get more lift? I really wanted a bigger lift but the place I got it done failed to mention the other available brands that had bigger lifts.
I want maybe another 3 or 4 inches any ideas???

Thanks

Airbags will be a fully custom setup on a Ranger. Edge_wannabe did a custom Solid Axle Swap, I don't know how much lift it is tho.

you can get air bags to work with what you have... eliminate torsion bar, make bag mounts, new shock mounts... not worth the $ and effort unless you are going custom and BIG

Hey thats a great idea... I wouldnt have thot of that. Thanks but see I gotta price it to see how much mine will sell for (its about a year old) and see how much the bagging will cost.

If i do that I will want a biggggg lift like ten inches at least. is that do able??

you could buy a used trail master kit ~4 inch of lift (or new) its made for 4wd, BUT, i dont think anyone ever found a reason why it would not work on a 2wd, even with spindle lift

no one actually has spent the money and tried it tho...

Anythings do-able it just depends on how much time and money you want to put into it. If your going for max life I would keep the body lift and rear lift components, sell the front and then SAS that pig.
