Lift Kit for 2007 Ranger FX4 II

I have an 2007 Ranger FX4 level II, 4x4 super cab. It came stock with alcoa rims and oversized tires and bilistein shocks but im not happy with them. Id like to add a quality suspension lift so i can fit some 35x12.5 mickey Ts Baja's. My problem is ive checked all over the internet and cant find a suspension kit that fits the 07 ranger 4x4. Anyone know where I can purchase one that will accomadate the tires I want.

I think your going to have to double lift to fit 35's. So a RCD lift or Superlift and a body lift.

why would he need a double lift to fit 35s? I thought it was pretty much the same truck as earlier year rangers?? I have a superlift with 35s and cranked Tbars, they run perfect for me!

Yea..yea......

I ran 35's w/ just 3" bodylift and cranked bars.....no rub except at full turn.....definately not comfortable enough to wheel it in that combo....

He'll probably need to cut a good chunk out of his front valence....01+ valences hang lower, and with 35's, you gotta trim it a lil bit anyway...probably more if it's "singally" lifted. I had no valence and no flares running 3" body and 35's. Not having those probably made it easier to run 35's.

Why would you want to stuff a tire in there?! I've never liked stuffage on trucks...

I'd rather have it look proportionate.

Go with RCD (with 750lb coils) and a 3" Body lift and some 315's or 35's... It'll look like this..

You just have to run the smaller brakes but it will work.

Yup! You just have to swap to the 11.25in brakes and you'll be fine! Don't have to change out anything else.

Thanks man! Where in Oregon are you from?

in 03 ford makes the discs larger in diameter......just so happens that that larger disc doesn't quite work with the RCD or Superlift knuckles.

Because the 04+ had a larger rotor on them... I think it was a 12in rotor on the 04+ and 01-03 had 11.25in

I may be off on the years by a year though... Let shane correct me.. He knows lol

I don't know about the RCD, but there's no problem with the Superlift & knuckles. I have a 2004 FX4 Level II with a Superlift, and only had a problem with the U-bolts for the rear lift being too small to fit the 8.8" rear end tube diameter (w/Torsen). Got bigger U-bolts and it was OK to go.

hi, ive got a 07 Ranger also and i have a 3" suspension lift on it i bought it online from a place in the U.S. in the kit it came with instructions and everything you need such as new "U" bolts 2" riser blocks for the rear and new torsion keys that lift the fron 3" so you dont need to buy a level lift. also were included were spacers for you stock shock so you dont have to replace them and all the hardware needed. im satisfied with it other then the ride is a heck of alot rougher.

Welcome to the site, you bumped a thread that was 3-4 years old and these guy barely visit here anymore. The kit you bought was a waste, you could crank you stock keys and throw a AAL or shackle under the rear and be where you are. Those keys are gonna wear out your front end. So will crancking the keys but those aftermarket ones put the cv's at an extreamly bad angle.
