Icon4 Rough Country / Cheaper Lift Drop Brackets - Dana35 Interference

I've been tossing around the idea of lifts for the ranger, and I was originally just going to go with 2" levelling coils, and a pair of shackles, however the Rough Country Lifts work out to being $200 or so more, and you get shocks.

The only problem I keep hearing about is the Drop brackets interfering with the Dana35 housing, but no problem with the Dana28's. (I have a 92 Ranger, 4 liter, should have the Dana35 correct?) At the same time, I hear Rough Country has new brackets now and there are no problems at all? I've been searching for a solid answer for a while, but I can't really find anything.

Anyone know for sure what the deal is? Thanks guys.

not sure. I have the gay IFS so i have not searched at all on the rough country stuff. i have heard of that problem though, and have not heard of a fix besides a DIY solution.

ahhh ok cool.
i sent rough country an email and hopefully they can give me a straight answer...although im probably just another sale to them. maybe I would be better off going with the superlift 4" or skyjacker 4/6" ? if anyone has any advice please chime in, thanks

It will fit... they wouldn't make a kit that would blow holes in your front diff.... also.. the Bronco and ranger kit are identical.. they have the same under carriage
