Wheres the best place for a lift in ST. Louis

I was checking to see if anyone out there knew of any good places to get a 4 in suspension lift kit put on a 1995 ford ranger I would also like to know of a place that does the lift and carries the tires and rims so I could get a better package deal I would like to put 33's on and could this be done for around $2000

First Capital 4 wheel drive in St. Chuck and Midwest 4 wheel drive (Home of Bigfoot)

First Capital is a full service shop with wheels, tires and just about anything else you would want. They are a little over priced but will deal if you have a better price from another shop. Midwest I have no idea about, but hell they build Bigfoots so I can only assume they are reputable.

Midwest 4 wheel drive
6311 N. Lindbergh Blvd.
Hazelwood, MO 63042
314-731-2822
First Capital 4 wheel drive
3725 Harry S Truman Boulevard,
Saint Charles, MO 63301

ooo yea.....for $2,000 you can get a Skyjacker Class II 6" lift and a set of 33x12.50x15 tires with 15x8 or 15x0 wheels....

I would recommend the Skyjacker Class II 6" lift....even if you just want a 4" lift, get a Skyjacker Class II lift....it comes with the springs, lift brackets, pitman arm, extended radius arms, and new rear lifted leafs....the only thing extra for the kit you will need will be extended brake lines ($120) and shocks ($120 for 4)....

you will want more after just the 4".....trust me, i had a 6" suspension lift and i wanted more so i went with a body lift.....and there really isn't that much difference in price between a 4" and 6" lift for a TTB Ranger...

6" lift and 33's: (my truck before body lift)

It's been a while since I have been there but Big Foot is at Lindbergh and 270. These are the guys that did the original "Big Foot" truck. Might want to try the phone book to see if they are still around.

axle boy in st. charles. when we had jeeps, the jeep club guys reccomend him over anyone. super nice guy. check out midwestjeepthing.com to check his record, he also posts there. his shop competes in the local top shop challenge at rockport as well. deffinately all the guys there are wheelers , not just business guys out to make money, and that means alot to me at least. hes over off cave springs in st, charles i believe his website is axleboy.com.

you might want to consider plum crazy offroad in crystal City, they do excellent work. As well as being very reasonable priced.

Or, you could buy the lift and we could make a meet out of it and you could come down here and we could put it on. I have a shop and all the tools we would need
