And now because RCD discontinued theirs, It is only superlift. And unfortunatly for some reason owning a ranger is like being the red headed step child of the aftermarket world.

im probably just going to go up the orad to triple x suspension which is 45 minutes away and have them make me a custom one. i doubt i will find one by next november, and im not really looking all that hard, although the only 1 i have seen thus far is body lifts or superlift makes a 3" suspension lift. idk.

buy some coil overs, the brackets RCD used for the shock mounts would be easy to fab.. I may still have them actually..

I know a guy who's about to SAS his ranger and wants to get rid of his superlift kit... I can get you in contact with him if you want.. a NEW superlift kit isn't 2 grand either..

and please, don't fab your own IFS lift kit lol.

Don't worry about lifting nothing but your *** to school. If you can barely afford to put gas as it is then how do you expect to do it with a lift? Wait until you can do it. There is no cheap lift for a 4wd. You can do torsion keys but in the end after replacing ball joints and everything else that fails from using them it would have been about the same as getting a Superlift.

well, i got a job but i dont want to save up all that money just to lift the truck. then i gotta get new tires, new rims, and off road stuff to go with it. i might go with superlift, but idk yet. i got my *** in school, im doing ok in school but im better off working. i enjoy working, i enjoy being at work, and i hate being at school. but i dont like to see 70 bucks go into my tak every week.
