I got forged lift keys off eBay, 2in lift shackles off eBay, did the explorer leaf spring swap. I left the factory blocks. I have a total of 4in of lift. I am running 32 in Gateway P58 16 Buckshot bias ply mudders. Pulls amazing. awesome tire.

btw...when had the lift keys installed it rode rougher. however, after I added the explorer leaf springs and leveled it out the ride improved a lot. my old ones were worn out. Overall it is rougher than before I did all the lifting and bigger tires but I am satisfied. It's really not too bad considering the big tires and 4 inches of lift. considering the much improved look and performance capabilities it was totally worth it. I still need to get my front end aligned. as it is it drives surprisingly well. the big bias ply tires balanced fairly well and it holds the road pretty good for big off road tires. the hum isn't too terrible "yet"....

So this is actually my first time ever in this forum and I was wondering if you could tell me everything you did with your truck because it is exactly what I wanting to do with mine. My truck is a ‘99 Ranger 3.0 4x4.
