Greetings from Blanco, Texas!

I recently purchased a 2010 Ranger, (2WD, 4.0L) with 95k miles, from a dealer near Dallas. I found it online, and had them deliver it to me, so I bought it based on the photos, and conversations with the sales guy.

Overall, it's in pretty good shape. I had to replace the washer pump motor and thermostat housing (was leaking). Also ordered new front rotors, pads, door sills, door weather stripping, and put on new wipers and a battery.

So, it's got some sort of lift. I found the FOX system after it arrived, don't think the dealer knew about it as it was never shown in any of the photos. How do I find out how much of a lift it has?

It rides pretty rough. I'm taking it in Friday to have the front end parts all checked out.

Here's the Ranger, next to my 2020 Ford F250 Tremor (7.3L, 4.30 gears)

Thanks!

As a kid, an Aunt lived in Blanco; good memories of swimming in the cool water of the Blanco River on hot summer evenings.
Good looking Ranger; hope new TStatHousing was Aluminum, not just Plastic junk?

What's the worst that could happen?
Good looking Ranger. The other one isn't bad either :p.
Tire size might give some indication as to lift. 31s can fit with no lift - maybe just a leveling kit in front.

I really like the stance. Welcome to TRS.

Thanks, all. It currently has 285/75/16s on it, which I think are pretty similar to 33s?
