Alright so here's a link to the truck I bought last night.

Clearly its bone stock. The first thing I would like to do is level out the front as it sits several inches lower than the rear. Im no mechanic. This is a 2WD rig. I'd just like to see what you guys suggest for a cheap lift.

I've looked all over the internet and seem to find nothing but parts for 2010 4x4's.

Any suggestions and links would be greatly appreciated!

The idea here is to jam some nice sized A/T's into those wheel wells and comfortably be able to bang around off paved roads.

1. try searching this site.
2. 2wd, so coil springs right? I had a time finding parts for mine. Found a shop in cali that makes a lot of parts for rangers, and kinda specializes in prerunners. doetsch-shocks.com, they sell leveling "kits" that are the spacers and shocks, but i called them and ordered just the spacers. They're a poly material that seem pretty well-made... ran me about $85 shipped. Or you could buy leveling springs, but they would obviously cost a little more. I stacked washers on top of my stock shocks to give me a little more up travel until i get around to getting longer ones.

Cool I appreciate the info. How much lift did you end up getting on the front end? Ill definitely give them a call and see what they suggest for a 2011.

So I just finished reading both your guys build threads. Nice work. Stuff looks good. Ive heard rangers havent changed up much in the last 10 years. Im wondering if most parts for the 2010's and maybe a few years older fit the 2011?

Im not looking to go too hardcore on my build, just enough to get me into the mountains so I can enjoy my camping.

I just downgraded from this machine here which got me everywhere I needed and then some. So im anxious to get this thing goin.

Yea, the coil spring suspension is the same since 98+ i believe. And those spacers leveled my truck perfectly.
