didnt know if you were 4x4 or 2wd but id say camburg all the way on my 00 2wd ranger ive got the full fabtech setup accept i replaced my fabtech coils with camburg crs racing spring and their shock setup the bilstein 5100's and it rides like a dream and i can haul threw almost anything and never lose traction and catch a little air hear and their and it just rides sweet just whatever you do dont put a block lift in the rear besides the stock blocks that come on 4x4s itl cause axle wrap and vibrate the cab im in the process of deleting my 3in block lift and getting skyjacker soft ride 6in lift leafs or deaver springs.. deavers will give you more travel if your more into the pre-runner ways of high speed threw sand and what not.. but i think thats all... thats my opinon hope you get a few more tips from others because im not a pro.. lol

all 2wd lifts

If you have not already search around on www.dezertrangers.com

Am I correct in assuming you are 2wd? While I do not have the kit, I have never read about anyone who does not like the Camburg 5.5 kit. Supposedly the best bang for the price, plus its very upgradable. From my knowledge you would not go wrong with the camburg 5.5(for XL/XLT) or 6.0(for Edge/Sport).

YA im 2wd i just wanted to see what else was out there. Ive seen the blitzkreig kit and also dixen bros. So far the camburg seems the most affordable way to go. Has anybody had the dual shock setup from camburg or known anybody who has?

Or try giving these guys a call. They seem to do good work. www.btf-fabrication.com They could probably hook you up, they do everything from just upper arms to long travel kits.

Now if that had I-beams it would have been a 1000 times better lol. But yah i would go with a camburg kit since it will be the best bang for your buck.

Fail.
A arms are better than i-beams by a long shot.

I think you already hit the big 3: blitzkreig, dixon bros, and camburg all make mid travel kits. I haven't looked in a while but I think H&M used to do one too.

And brandon from BT Fabrication could probably whip something up for you too. He did all of Trent's fab work and does some quality stuff.

Do it right the first time, go with the burg kit.....Dont do like me and get a fabtech 5.5 with reservoir shocks haha. That stupid little uni ball spindle and a-arm makes a world of difference.

And yes, hit up Brandon at BT Fab he does great work, ive got his number if you want it, hes installing the reservoir shocks on my front end :)

and plus....I think its going to be hard to BEND A CAMBURG SPINDLE lol!!
