spring tech 6" lift

what does everyone think about the spring tech 6" lift kit for my 2008 2wd ranger xl. I going for the prerunner look but I still dont want crappy suspension. for the rear I was just going to get the deaver springs from camburg and spring tech 2" rear shackle lift.......how does that sound?!?? Also I think with some raised and flared fiberglass fenders I should have some good tire travel. What size tires and wheels should I put on? sorry for all the questions again......

Check out the RCD 6" kit fits 1998-2008 2wd ford rangers. increases the ride height and obtains superior front-end ground clearance with no front end drop cross members. As far as the rear goes the Deaver f31 pre-runner packs are great for the avid off roader on their DD.

Yeah, they sure do. RCD just doesn't offer any lifts for the 4wd or edge models with torsion frt. suspension.

Actually they stopped making the 4wd kits. So the only kits they have now are for 2wd coil spring rangers.

The spring tech kit won't gain you any kind of wheel travel. Which shouldn't matter because the kit isn't meant to be used except for driving on pavement.
