That's the WannaBe Conversion option. It's for those who don't have the fortitude to do the real thing. Hockey pucks and long bolts are under $400.

You know these are the kind of responses I have come to expect it goes to show no one has any respect when I first bought my truck it's what I could afford I have put money into it and am keeping it a good while because I have money into it bought the truck. For $4100 and have other into it, I asked a simple question what do I get people chirping my thoughts why because it's a 2 wd what does that have to do with anything it's what I could afford at the time boys... Yea it would be nice to have 4 wheel but she ain't and I'm on a buget as I'm 18 and buy my own shit. Okay so I'll just keep googling and hope I find the information I was looking for people that have allready done this.. Was looking for expejance and opinions. Thanks any ways guys

lift for 2005 ford 2wd ???

I agree with Zach guys.

What the fuck does it matter? Why ya gotta shoot him down?
It's his money, his truck, he wants to lift it.

Mike, same reason why you owned a raptor for 2 yrs and not once did you need it. (Probably never had to put in 4x4.)
You owned it because YOU WANTED IT.

He was looking to see if any of us had lifted a 2wd and what we used. Maybe he never does plan to off road. But would be no difference then 99% of the guys owning raptors. Martin included.

My post to you Zach is.
400 isn't going to get you a large suspension lift. You could get a 2-2.5. Front leveling kit and rear blocks. Roughly 200. Rough country is pretty good IMO .

Then if it's not enough lift while under budget maybe consider a body lift. .

Most 4-6" lifts are major suspension components. $2000-4000. For them. Depending on brand, shocks, etc.

Over-react much ?

You post things up on here, you gotta expect to take some static, no reason to get all bent out of shape, sense of humour right ?

Yah, the Raptor's a pretty easy target, good on you Travis, you're right, no one NEEDS a Raptor, but don't be hating on those that have one and choose not to beat the crap out of it.

FYI, I used 4 Hi practically all winter with the Raptor, so nice try there as well.

Just because I wasn't in the mud, beating the shit out of it, doesn't mean I didn't use 4WD any less than you did with your truck, but I guess those days are in the past for you.



Zach - don't get all bent out of shape, you got a pretty thin skin for an 18 year old kid, and you even said right in your post you expected these responses, so don't act all surprised and offended.

Maybe if you had said something about only looking for helpful responses, instead of smart ass comments, the outcome would have been different, but not likely.

I've been in your shoes, sinking whatever money you could into your ride, so don't think I don't know what that's like, because we've all been there.

Wow, this is the most excitement we've had here in a while.

Come on it was hump day yesterday everyone should be happy lmao.

Anyway, don't cheap out on your lift even if it is a 2WD. The cheaper you go the worse it will look. Save some coin and do it right, your already gonna get shit for it being a lifted 2WD.
