orange Lift kit 4th generation?

Does anyone know if there is any kind of lift kit (including body lift spacers) available for a 4th generation 2006 Ford Explorer? I have been having trouble finding parts for this year.

I dont know to much about the Road Bully lifts. That may work on a 4th gen being they work on the 3rd gen but I havent seen one done. I am really interested in it aswell.

Roadbully Offroad says they will work, and there are some on here who have used them. See the thread in the 02-05 section for details.
I have a set of 2.5" strut spacers coming for mine.

Yes Road-Bully lift spacers will work with your 4th gen. Check out the link or check out his website. Good luck with the build, post some pics as you go along.

i purchased, and love, my Truxx strut spacers, gave me about 4 inches of lift total, 2.5 front spacers and 2.25 rear, and i got them on a site for cheaper than the actual seller Truxx. off a site called truckeo.com the link is - http://www.truckeo.com/products/2006...-Lift-Kit.html
hope it works out, theres also a ranger body lift that works for an additional 3" if you need/want it, but i can fit a 285 75 r15 with just the truxx lift tho i recommend a 265 75 r15

You dont think that maybe 3yrs later he got his answer? And the fact that there are a ton of threads about the lifts now?

You newbies are so useful.
