Another reason to post up some pics! :D

2007 FX4 Level II - Superlift/AAL/shackles/15X10" wheels/33" tires





$500 - Brand new Superlift off Craigslist
$300 - Shortened/balanced/rebuilt XJ driveshaft
$45 - Procomp Short AAL
$50 - Belltech shackles
$500 - Wheels
$800 - Tires

All said and done I was well under $2500 once you figure in some shipping, alignment, tire labor/balancing, buying all Grade 8 hardware instead of the junk Superlift sends...
Not bad for buying EVERYTHING in Canada!

You could do the pre-key mod and a t-bar crank and run 33's. You could also throw in a shackle in the back for a little more lift.

okay my full intention is to get 33's under this truck it is a stock 09 i know i can do a pre-key mod and a full torsion crank to raise the front, and then i could do a pro comp short AAL with the belltech shackles but would that give me enough lift for 33's I'm on and off road so my concern is will i still have the full range of motion of the suspension or will it bottom out cause i have to jump a lot of curbs, sometimes when I'm fully loaded. and i'm also curious the belltech 6400 shackles were meant to lower trucks however are these the shackles that raise or lower the rangers. also I'll have to do a swap to a 4.10 or 4.73 i currently have a 3.73 gears.

With the pre-key torsion crank and AAL you can fit 33's no problem. I only have a torsion crank and I clear 33's no problems. My tires are 33x11.50 on factory 16x7" rims with 4.5" of backspacing and I only rub on the sway bar but that's not a problem what so ever. And the Belltech 6400's lower Chevy's but lift Ranger's about 2". Oh and with the 3.73's that you have now you'll have no troubles turning the 33's. Even when wheeling.

SuperLift / Tires / Oil Change.
Cost: Two Sets of Bucket Seats and two sticks of 1.5” Tubing + Tip



If you are close to the US might be worth the try to see how much.

US is not inexpensive...

rangerboy101 ya if you could post some picks please do. also if a 33 rubs on the sway bar I'm wondering if i should either go down to a 32" or could i get an offset rim that would make a 33 fit. or is there an aftermarket sway bar i could get to fix this problem.

I'm also curious which add a leaf kit did you use cause I've seen 2 listed form pro comp the first is just 2 straight leaf springs the second is a bunch of leaf springs already tied together with 2 end bushings.

Procomp Rear Short Add A Leaf Set Ford Jeep Chevy Dodge : eBay Motors (item 290316736471 end time Apr-06-10 2246 PDT)

Amazon.com: Explorer Pro Comp 13120 Rear Short Add-a-Leaf Kit: Automotive

I'll go and snap some good level pictures with the tires straight so you can get a better idea of how it sits. Don't worry about the tires rubbing on the sway bar. Mine barely rubs and it doesn't hurt the tires any. And I should add, the tires only rub when I have my wheels at full lock and I mean FULL lock.

I used the 13120 short AAL. The second link you posted is the same one, the pic just isn't accurate.

Yeah, I just put some 33s on my truck with just a tbar crank...they fit fine, but it rubs when at full lock...If you plan on lifting it...just get some 33s, no need to downsize to a 32
