Tough Country 4" Lift for SLA 98-03?

Ok I searched, and to no avail can't find anything, but I find this?

http://www.4wheelonline.com/Products...ProductId=9739

About 5-6 lines down you can see the 98-03 4 inch Performance System for Ford Ranger's, for around 829$??

Anyone shed some light on this??

Yes, but a 4x2 vs. 4x4 lift is different in the spindles for sure. 4x2 and 4x4 SLA lifts are inherently different in that way, if no other.

Now back on topic... The only lift kits I know of are the Trail Master kit for around 1400 or so and the Superlift kit for 1300 or so.. For the 4x4 / 2x4 Edges.
Also the DVR Long travel kit but that is not a lift just a long travel suspention kit. (3000 +++) LOL

I just called them, and the guy said that it will be for a 4x4 ranger. But it's not available yet, and the shocks are optional for an additional price.

I asked him about this kit:
4" Performance System 98-03 Ranger - TC24960
Shocks Not Included Avalible summer 2005


Price: $929.99 Sale Price: $829.99

Thats a pretty damn good deal for a 4x4 Suspension lift. I hope someone on the site tries it out, so we can see how it performs.

I looked on that page and didn't see anything for a newer Ranger, they must have took it off after you called them.

Same here. When it comes to my truck's suspension, I don't really feel that cutting corners is safe. Last thing I want is my wheels falling off while I'm driving down the road!
