Would this Kit work with my truck?

I was dreaming big the other night and decided to search for some bigger lift kits and came across this one.

01-08 Ford Ranger 6" Lift Kit

Would this kit work on my truck?

3.0 v6 2wd

What do you have on there now? Fabtech? That kit looks like a POS to fabtech. If you want go bigger then put on a body lift. Cheap and easy.

you have an edge, and that kit shows that it is for a coil sprung truck. also, you have servicable wheel bearings and not sealed like the spindle is designed for so i cant think of anything that kit will fit

Only the 4x4s have sealed, the 2wd edge's are serviceable.

Looks to me like it comes with a 3 inch lift coil but like mentioned in this thread the op has a edge which has torsion bars so hes sol. Sorry man might as well as get the camburg 6.0 kit!

How does that kit get the extra 3" out back? it only comes with a 3" block.

Also, how do they package a 4wd spindle with a 2wd coil?
