I hate to repeat a question, yes i have done advanced seach for tt adjustments. If a TT lifts the front, then what is to be done with the back, ive got 99' xlt and i need to lift it so i can put bigger tires. Again, excuse my ignorance, im tryin to modify it without spending alot of money since im only about to turn 16 and dont have too much cash for suspension lift.

if anyone can make a good suggestion on which would be the best to allow use of bigger tires it would be welcome. Still looking to see if a older model body lift will work or if a current year Ranger body lift would fit without to much trouble.

Performance Accessories PA-883 Body Lift for a Ranger. You won't use 2 of the body lift pucks, and you will also need to purchase 2 more bolts, as the kit doesn't come with enough of the right size.
Warrior Products WAR-153 Shackles, will gain you around 1" lift in the rear, along with an Add-a-leaf will get you roughly another 1".
Then do a TT in the front.

You can get around 4-5" total with all that.

oh yeah, and if the tires you're gettin are 33x12.50s, you will also need to remove the tupperware :D

Extra Bolts

If your carefull and take out all of one side and compare the new bolts with the old bolts you will find that you can mix and match and not have to buy any new bolts. That is reusing the existing bushings without drilling them out ( excluding the very front one)

And If my poor ole memory serves me right the lift requires 10 pucks and the kit comes with 14 so I would say 4 spares.
