Lift for 35's

Hello I've been browsing around the net for a while and even made a few phone calls on this topic but in the end i figure I have to go to the guys that actually own and drive these machines what is a simple and cheap way to lift my truck so i can put at least 33'3 if not 35's on it. Ford tells me i can only use suspension lift and it can't be more then 4 inch otherwise i void my warranty, I currently own a 2009 ranger sport 4X4 4.0. everything is stock as far as suspension goes. when i contacted a local 4x4 shop the tech told me they didn't have a suspension lift kit for my truck but he could custom fab one for $3700 it would give me a 4 inch all around lift, but he said even with that i could only fit 32" tires, please help.

I recommend a 4" Superlift suspension lift kit for 33's. You will also need a 3" body lift for 35's.

i'll need to get a shop to do it seeing i don't have all my tools at the moment now you say a 4 inch kit will be enough for 33's however will i need a different type of rim to push the tire out more so when i turn it wont rub the fender, and how much do these super lifts tend to cost. also i should have mentioned i'm in canada are those kits even available to me.

Superlift kits cost about $1500 US, but you can get them cheaper used. I'm sure you could have the kits shipped to Canada, especially from an individual.

ok this will work for 33x12.5 on 10"wide rims with a 3.75 back spacing and will rub a bit with 35s with the same rims.

... 3" body lift 2" blocks in the back, lift keys and crank them keys..
