View Full Version : 04 ranger long arm
09-02-2009, 11:20 PM
i was looking into the blitzkrieg long arm kit for my 04 ranger
the truck is just the base model boring ranger
on blitzkriegs site it says it is for xlt and edge rangers
and while i was checking everything out i noticed my frame looks a little odd compared to the pictures of builds ive been seeing
could anyone help me out
hoping im just going crazy but i want to be sure before i drop the cash

If it's for XLT and Edge Rangers, then that's an oxymoron of sorts. Both trucks in 2wd versions have completely different suspension systems.
Edge: Torsion bars
XLT/XL : Coil springs
Control arms are different.
Post up a link.

blitz makes kits for both the T bar and the coil spring rangers. the long travel kits, convert both over to C/O
and the mid travel kits work with the coil spring for the XLt trucks.
if your after a mid travel kit, look in to BTF fab as well. have some more pocket freindly options.

OP, I assume you've got a 2wd XL or 2wd XLT because of the 2.3L note in your sig thing.
So...here's the kits that'll fit your truck:
You're comment about the frame looking different, is either you're looking at the edge/explorer kit, as the frame is ALOT different that yours, or you're looking at the LT kit for your truck which alot of frame modifications are needed...at least thats what it looks like to me. Coil bucket looks completely removed and covered with upper coil mount locations.
