Hi everyone.

I have a 2008 Ranger 4.0 V6 and want to install a K+N aircharger kit. BUT I see on the installation instructions that this kit was not designed to fit a vehicle with body lift. Can anybody answer why, or has someone had some experience with this kit?
Any help would be appreciated as K+N cannot tell me why it would be a problem. Surely if you lift the body the engine gets lifted as well?
Regards
Wolf

No sir. Motor is bolted to the frame and the body is lifted off the frame. So the motor and body create a gap. I would try the kit and make it fit if it were me.

When I bought the truck (Ford South Africa)it was sold as a "hi rider" so I am not sure how they achieved the lift. Looking at it, it seems they raised the suspension. Anyway thanks for the comments.
