OVERVIEW

Give your Ford Ranger an improved, aggressive look with Rough Country’s 2.5in Leveling kit! This easy-to-install kit levels your vehicle from front to rear giving you increased ground clearance to run larger tires while eliminating the nose-down factory look for a commanding presence that can’t be ignored.

When it comes to leveling your Ranger, a small lift can make a huge difference! By lifting the front end of the vehicle to match the height of the rear, you get an instant transformation in looks and ground clearance that’s sure to turn heads wherever you go.

Each kit features a set of front strut spacers, laser cut for a precise fit and powder coated black to resist the elements. Rough Country’s 2.5in Leveling Kit features an easy, 100% bolt-on installation process with no need for complicated strut disassembly. Includes a Lifetime Replacement Guarantee!

FEATURES
  • Levels the front with the rear of the vehicle
  • Easy bolt-on installation
  • Maintains factory ride quality
  • Increased ground clearance
  • No need to disassemble your struts to install

I had the 2.5 rough country lift installed on my new ranger. I like the way it rides so far haven't been off road any yet. I would like to keep the factory wheels and go bigger tires not sure what would be the right size with out all the off set wheels and all.

I think Jim used 265/70R17s. Tire clearance without changing rims was minimal but worked just fine for his recent multi-day trail ride using the factory rims.

No, only change is the tires.

No, it's only a loaner from Ford. He was not allowed to make any permanent changes and I imagine he wanted to minimize expenditures on a vehicle he would have to take everything off and return to it's original stock configuration.
