the only cheap enough lift for 4x2 trucks are 3 inch spindle lifts, unless you wanna shell out a bunch of money into camburg lifts

If you can't take sarcasm, then you should go elsewhere. This forum is full of it and may or may not be for you.

Second a 2X4 is a piece of lumber, a 4X2 is a 2wd truck or SUV.

Stick around, all of my stuff was intended in fun! I'm not an ******* on the site here, or at least try not to be. Unfortunately I own 4wds so I don't know much about 2wd lifts except for the 3" spindle lift from fabtech. If you want a badass look on a Ranger, find some 30X9.50 BFG All Terrains and slap em on there. No need to twist the torsion bars, and it gives it a pretty nasty stance. My buddy Eric (whom I'm still trying to convince to get on here) just did it to his 2001 2wd, looks 20X better than the donuts he had on it

If you get a new Ranger Sport, it'll have torsion bars, you can crank those, add a spindle lift, and stuff 33's on there.

If you get a regular Ranger (non-sport), you won't have torsion bars. My '98 Ranger (non-torsion bar) has a 3" Spindle and 3" Body Lift with 33's.

My '98

Why would anyone lift a 2wd truck anyways? This might be a stupid question, but im not trying to poke fun... I've just never seen a 2wd mud truck...I'm in Iowa and I can only think of one person who OWNS a 2wd truck, much less lifts one

If done right, 2wd's can be just as good or better than a 4wd can be on the trail. All you're loosing is the front differential. Lock the rear, lift a 2wd, and it'll run with the big dogs. Look at John Griggs, he just now added 4wd!

Mudding is not the only offroading. I have a 2wd and have gone through ALOT of mud.

I have gone through enough mud in my 2wd truck to make it look like this:

I see... thats a nice looking truck by the way, Roach. I guess the main reason around here for the 4x4 is the Iowa winters... we have had 6+ inches of snow on the ground since the week before thanksgiving... makes it a little tricky getting around

and alot of times 4x4 guys do most their offroading in 2wd, untill they get stuck

2wd does suck in the snow, but it's managable. Shoot, yesterday was the first snow all winter I've had my Ranger in 4wd all day. Most of it was because it was icy and starting on ice with no weight in the bed is tough. The other snows this winter, I'll kick in 4wd in spots but it's in a consistant 2wd.

My truck is now SAS'd but it was a lifted and offroaded 4x2 for years. The details are in my Cardomain site in my signature. Keep in mind I started with an Edge 4x2 which has the 4x4 ride height to begin with.
