Angry Has anyone with an 07 4x4

Managed to find a lift for it yet? I have found levelers for the front end, but they seem to go up to 06 only?


I googled and googled and dogpiled and nothing..

Yes there are lifts for 07 + They are not just bolt on. Both RCD and superlift make nice kits for Rangers

The Superlift should work as nothing has changed (that I know of) since 2005, and it is a bolt. The RCD is not bolt-on and also requires the smaller front brakes from earlier Rangers.

how much lift are you looking for?? there are some cheap ways to gain a few inches. I was going to buy the 4 inch Superlift with my bonus from work... until I worked it all out to roughly $4100 cdn installed after tax. four grand can go a long way on a rig and i didnt feel like spending it on a cheap (imo) lift. so i did some more looking around and found an easy way to gain 1-3 inches without using a bodylift...(i dont like bodylifts at ALL). the obvious for the front is to crank the tits out of your torsion bars, depending on how much lift you want. and for the rear you could either use add-a-leaf springs, or go find yourself some drop shackles for an 88-98 1/2 ton chevy truck, flip them suckers, and you got some lift... ill post up some pictures after i do mine on saturday

I cranked my torsion bars up a full 2" from stock and I'll be adding a shackle to the back end to bring it up 1".

I would definitely not recommend cranking the bars any further, the angles it creates on the cv joints are pretty steep even at a 2" crank...

The warrior shackles will gain you 1" or 2" on the rear and I haven't come up with an effective/affordable way to raise the front any more.

I have a '07 mazda B4000 and I just finished putting the RCD lift on this week-end! Although it is says it is only for 98-02 Rangers, it still fits the newer models without creating more issues:





Now I just need to get out and test this thing on the trails!

It's a 4wd. The white grill comes off a B3000 sport. Some moron backed into the front of my truck this winter and broke it. When I went to get a new one, the dealer ordred the wrong part # and I ended up with a white grill instead. At first I was pissed, but now I think I like it better than the chrome one... so I might end up putting the crest back on this one instead!

Thanks! These pics were taken right after the lift was installed last weekend. The front now sits a bit higher since I squeezed about an inch more out of the adjustable coils...
