Ive pondered for several days now on lowering my truck...... and then i had an epiphany.... in the form of a prerunner
they are built with 2wd chassies for people that dont know... and my truck is a 2wd. so the reason for starting this thread is to figure out if a 6inch lift for a 4wd will work because if i am not mistaken they have the same suspention... the 4wd just has a differential on the front i beams... so what do you all think
i like the front clip on the 92-96 models but since im going to be lifting it i think ill keep my 88 front clip i think ill go with the 4" lift
80-96 2wd Ford F150 4" suspension [467H] 469.95 469.95
80-89 Ford F150 Front Brake Lines  39.95 39.95
80-96 Ford F150 Rear Brake Line  34.95 34.95
beautiful truck and i have looked into the 2wd suspension lifts thats what i have priced out in the earlier post on here. i thaught about the body lift but i want the bumper up too.... and the 4 inch suspinsion lift will give me roughly 10" of travel i think who makes the bumpers with skid plates i looked on AUTOFABS site and they have them but no price.... i think i might be stuck with just getting a grill guard for now and mounting some lights on it ...... lol i might have the money by january
If you can fab, you can fix the bumper no problem. I just don't care enough. Thank you for the compliment. I would look into a 4'' suspension lift if I were you. I personally don't have anything against body lifts. I believe they serve a purpose. No complains about mine so far.
I say go for 3 - 4 inches of lift so you don't run into too many problems and issues. A 3.73 gear set would help turn over some nice 33x11.5's.
How much money do you want to spend on this? What's the budget here? A body lift is $150. Helps save some cash for tires and gearing.
Ideally it would be nice if you could just run a 4'' suspension lift, 33'' tires and a 3.73 gear set.
