    Anybody know where you can find a good one for a 2002 4x4? Done quite a bit of searching but it seems like there's only ones for the 2wd

    There is a company that was making a coil over conversion lift kit they quit making them but there are some retailers online that still have them and the other is superlift,, those are the only two company's I can think of that make a lift for the IFS ranger. You can also do a torsion twist to your truck and add warrior 153 shackles that will lift the truck at about a max of 2" but also requires a front end alignment afterwards.

    EDIT: The Company that was making the coil over conversion lift kit is called RCD. And found another link for the superlift from a retailer.

    Yeah, No prob. I been looking at them for awhile just can't decide which one I'd rather have because getting rid of the torsion bars sounds like a good idea with the RCD lift but costs more.

    Yeah...but they're worth it :) You could also go body lift which that part number is 'PA 883' which is Performance accessories brand, its a 3inch body lift its a cheap alternative to lifting your truck and being able to fit larger tires under your truck you could combine that with the torsion twist and lift shackles. The reason I don't care for the body lift that much is because besides fitting bigger tires I want to gain more ground clearance than what the larger tires will provide.

    I wouldnt go with a body lift because all of them ive seen didnt look good because the rear bumpers had a large gap between the tailgate

    If I go the body lift route, which is probably what I'll do, I'll definitely get the filler for the bumper. Otherwise that just looks retarded

    please i repeat...dont do a body lift....waste of money
    if you got 3k just ich'n to burn, do it right
    build a shock hoop and throw up some 8 or 10 in coilovers
    put better leafs in the back or deavers...which ever floats your boat
    it will get the lift you want without the ****y shocks that rattle the crap out of your truck

    the cheapy lift i have on my truck has caused my driver side lower arm to crack 3 inches. so also plate your lower arms if you know how, or have a friend do it, to save you the trouble later on.
