98+ 4x4 Rangers.....

RCD

Superlift

That's it.


Trailmaster has a lift(or used to), but you want to steer well away from that one.

Dixon Brother's Racing has a long travel 4x4 kit, but it only nets a little bit of lift.

STAY AWAY FROM TORSION KEYS!!

That's what I was thinking, but I figured I'd let a 4wd guy answer that.

And.......since your really not moving the bolt, and you can move that bolt....hello ball joint bindage. Quickly wear the joints out. We'll let T_Schloesser run it for a year or two, then he'll find out that ball joints definately dont run 75k like they used to.
