More lift!!!!

Recently I put on a 3in suspension lift with 31's but it not a tall as I want it to be. I want extra lift that I can clear 33's or 35's and look good. Anyone have any suggestions??? This what the truck looks like now

springs and upper arms in front and you can add a block in the rear

other then that you can just do a body lift

His Bull Bar wouldn't fit properly with a bodylift.

regear for 33s or 35s.......

trade in for a 3.0 or 4.0 engine and 4x4 suspension so you don't have to lift to fit 33x10.50x15 tires stock.

thats not how it works

my 32x11.5s rubbed at full lock a tiny bit with 3" spindles. 33x12.5 would definitely rub, they would fit, but they would still rub

So what would be the best lift to add to my 3in SL for fitting 33x12.5x15 with no rubbing?

Oh ok some of you guys dont understand, not all rangers have torsion bars. The only 2wds that have torison bars are EDGE/Sports. He has coil sprung suspension thats why he can't fit 32s stock.

you could either do lift coils and upper arms or a body lift. A body lift is the cheaper route.

Thanks, FX4. Could I get 2in coil spacers in the front and a 2in block in the back?

go to rusty's offroad and u can get lift coils for REALLY cheap...they are for jeeps but im sure they would work... then the rear add a add aleaf, or get 6in skyjacker leaf's (or smaller ones) plus a 3in BL should be able to clear 35's no problem.. but upgrade to 4.88 or more for gearing
