It's gonna look great!
Tons of people used that lift 10-15 years ago. If you dig some in the search, you should find some convo about the install.
What size tire are you going to run? Regear?
 






Oh, there used to be a couple spots where the lift parts would break. Maybe Superlift has addressed them over the years, but here's an old link showing where they would break. Take a look and check your new parts before they are put on.
At the end of the link, there's another link showing how to beef up one of the brackets.

No Linky...

I want to run 33's or 35s right now, whatever budget allows. Maybe up to 38's in the future.

As far as gearing looking at 4.56 or 4.88's

I think 5.13 is too low for daily driving with 35's.

I believe I can fit 35's with alittle trimming, if not a short body lift.
 












My 5.5" superlift will (hopfully) be here next week:thumbsup:

so i will follow this thred:)

Sweet! let me know if I can help at all, and I will do the same.

You might get to it before I do, though. Im ironing out A4LD issues before I install. looking to have it done before May gets here.
 






After I get the lift installed, next plans include 3" body lift and electric fan kit (figure itll be a good time for that) and some good bumpers. I figure that will happen sometime in early 2016. Then Im after the GT40 5.0L and 4R70W upgrade (will be like MUTINEER with a bed :D )I cant wait to get this started!
 












Thanks! :Bigthumb
 


















Sorry I been gone and havent started this yet. I had an 4.0 Explorer that blew timing chain cassettes and now I have a '01 Hyundai Sonata in my garage blew a timing belt at speed, and had to do an engine swap. ...And now were chasing down OBD codes. Nights and weekends move slow. I hope to start on this before May. Sorry to those of you watching this, should get started soon.
 












Putting a rear end in the wifes Durango tomorrow and then its ON... Im so stoked...:D:D:D
 
























Sorry everyone, had a family thing that put everything on hold for awhile. Im working on getting my work truck running (rebuilding the 700R4) and the build begins... I understand if you dont follow this post anymore, I will try to redeem myself in the near future.
 






Stuff happens, to everybody. Good things come to those who wait.

Finally!!!

OK yall its about damn time. I finally got to the Superlift 5.5" kit on the Ranger, which has earned the name "Little Hero", due to it always being the vehicle that saves the others when they break... as amazing as it sounds, the Ranger is always ready. :lol:

I have attached pictures of the progress, I will keep this post updated as I get done. The pictures in this post cover about one and a half days worth of work.

Enjoy, and sorry it took so long! :salute:
