Lift Kit

Looking for a 4"-5" lift for my 1999 4WD Ranger XLT, I'd perfer not to do a body lift, they look stupid with the gaps, so I'm looking for suspension lift...anyone know where i can find one?

used... no, New parts....yes, in the reading, search function works wonders.

I'm not tellin you to SEARCH to be a dikk but there are tons of things involved in lifting on a 4wd. and I'm assuming you haven't taken many into consideration.

so it is my advice to you to start reading, and when you are more definite on what you want I'd be happy to help you locate it for the best price.

^^ crappiest answer ever.

If you tell soemone to search, jus say one word, its better cause you coulda told him with that much typing.


You most likely want a 4 inch superlift that you can find anywhere online. This is not cheap by the way, our trucks are expensive to lift(well, expensive for US, not for the company lol) and you're looking at 1400 for the lift and 300 for a new driveshaft you'll eventually need(they sell one).

It will look really good though. But seriously, a body lift is 150 dollars, and is a half inch to an inch shorter than a real suspension lift. I'd recommend a body lift and 33s.
The gap can be covered with gap guards that the companies sell.

superlift has a 4inch, rcd makes a 5 inch kit with a coilover swap for the front butttt it wont work on your truck cause of the vaccuum system unless you drill out a hole for the vaccuum line, rcd will alow this if its done right..........rethink the body lift if your just looking for some bigger tires, gap guards make it a totally different looking truck.....

no gaps here......
