      there is one company that makes them, I believe its superlift. its pricey though. You can achieve the same result much cheaper with a 3" body lift and 2" suspension lift via shackles and torsion twist

      03XSPORT, unless you do SAS, SOA there's really no "custom" lift for our trucks. Superlift makes a 4" lift kit for them but they aren't really IMHO a "lift", you're just dropping the front IFS down from the frame.

      I did a 3" bodylift, 1.75" TT, Warrior Products lift shackles and 33" DuraTrac's on 15x8" Cragar Soft 8's with 4" b.s...

      Here's a couple pictures of mine, it's a '03 Sport Trac 4wd XLT... I plan on doing a SAS, SOA in the near future. Tired of the limitations of the IFS.

      The Explorer Sport (year's 95-03) are the same setup "RFV" as the 95-01 Explorer, Mountaineer and the '01-05 Explorer Sport Trac as well as the Rangers from 95-on, just a heads up to make it easier to shop around for lift parts.

      Try checking out the Offroad section, you'll get alot more answers there.

      The 4" lift for 2nd gen Explorers is, relatively, no different than a lift kit for a solid axle vehicle. They both lift the frame relative to the axles.

      The only difference is that the diff has to be lowered on an IFS setup vs a solid axle.

      So you're basically saying no suspension lift is a "real lift"

      Technically yes, the only true lift you get is from the tires but you need to lift the suspension/ body to do this. You could skyjack the hell out of any vehicle but unless you put taller tires on there you won't get any "real" clearence lift.
