Yes Ryan does have a good point, but you remember Twoplusone, right? You saw the places he took his truck. Pretty hardcore stuff if you ask me! He said he never got hung up on the t-bars or anything.

Superlift does drop the torsions, its part of the kit. Its to keep a correct angle on the bars so they don't bend to crap and rub, like we saw in a topic a few weeks ago.

was there measurements taken? if they are like 3-4 inch drop brakets then its the same height as stock. and actually they are prolly higher than stock because you would be running 33s with the lift.

if you think about its a 3-4 inch lift, when you lift you have to drop the front arms, torsion bars and stuff but the only reason you do that is cause you are lifting the frame. to me they are the same height as the stock t-bars. they just look lower because they are farther from the frame.

LOL I think you guys are saying the same thing sort of, if you drop the t-bars, or lift the frame doesn't that mean the same thing.

Yeah the torsion bars sit farther down from the frame, but that's because the frame is 4" higher. That's why they look like they "hang down" more than a stock truck. The bars stay in the same place relative to the lower arms and spindles. They would sit higher from the ground only from the added height of bigger tires.

For the money and the bolt-on factor I think I would go for the superlift, maybe one day.

Yep, don't regret moving up. If I was paid more by the gov't I would have kept the Ranger, but it was time to move on.

I looked at superlift a few times, just never had the funds to actually do it.
