2007 lift

Does anybody know of a decent front lift kit available for an '07?
National 4WD can't find one anywhere.

If I have to do it myself I think I'll just order bigger gas shocks, maybe crank the torsion bar. From what I gathered from the internet, the shocks in my ranger are like a coil over but use a pneumatic spring concept inside. Are there any problems with getting longer shocks? The front tires will be closer together and all and I might need bigger bump stops, maybe an alignment but I can't find any major problems.

There is nothing up there on the market for new 4x4 Rangers
Yes Fabtech is working on one

The only option you have at this time is a body lift

i talked to a guy with a 4" superlift from a 01-05, in his 07, and i asked him, did you have to do any modifications... and he said nope, bolted right up. just the front driveshaft was replaced with the superlift d/s. the RCD kit requires you to change yer rotors, to a smaller size that came on the 01-05 rangers

Yes and agree, you need more parts than just a lift
The best way would be to PM Blackstock, They will tell you if it will work for you. I looked at front driveshaft on them, on the hoist and you can't just throw a lift on it. More parts are involve with it and that will include drive shafts and supports for them

For a good quality lift I'd go with either Superlift or RCD. You'll be looking at $1600 + for the kit depending on what you get, but you get what you pay for. Don't forget to order a new front driveshaft too as the stock one will prematurely wear out... This goes for which ever kit you buy.

Good luck and post up some pictures when you get it done... I haven't seen a 06'+ Ranger with a lift like that on it yet around here... should look amazing when it's all said and done.
