Thinking about lifting my ranger some more

i already have a 5" RCD lift and 33s on my ranger but i want it higher. Well me and the shop manager at my work were talking about lifting my truck some more. I know i could do a 3" BL but i dont like the look of a BL. What do yall think about custom lifting it 4 more inches and adding 37s with 20s and 4:56 gears? Yes or no? Or do yall have any more options?

I don't know what you could do to get much higher on your current setup.

I don't like body lifts either.

You'd almost have to consider just doing SAS, after that it's easier to get a lot of lift.

O ok. Thats why i posted it here bc i was wondering what all would need to be done. I dont really wana do a SAS bc i dont off road with it. I may just get another truck and lift it the way i want it and leave my truck the way it is.

Yea I would do a body lift. With gap guards and raising the bumpers you can't tell at all.
