Default 4 Inch Rancho Lift Installed Pics!

I finally bit the bullet and bought a lift. I went with the 4 inch Rancho kit because 4wheel Parts was running an insane deal on them. They price matched another website at $1,300 for the kit, plus the were running a 'free install' promo for rancho products. The kit didn't come with shocks so I had to buy those. My total out the door (tax and install included) price was just under $1,900. And on top of that they are sending me a $150 gift card for spending over 1k. I also picked up some 18 inch Moto Metal rims and 35 inch tires on the local classifieds for $400.

The kit seems really well made and fairly simple. It uses the rancho RS5000 shocks to lift the front 4 inches along with new steering knuckles and a dropped subframe. The rear is lifted with 2.5 inch progressive rate springs. The kits maintains factory driveline angles to allow the truck to be aligned to factory specs. The kit is also compatible with factory wheels without the use of spacers. It also comes with a lifetime warranty.

The ride is great, maybe a tad stiffer than the factory ride, but I prefer it that way. The pics are kind of dark, but I figured you all would want them now rather than waiting for better light.

Looks great. You did well on the cost installed too because I bought the Rancho kit for mine in '05 (obviously quite a bit different for a torsion bar front truck as opposed to coil overs), installed it myself and still spent just over $1700 with shocks (RS9000x)...

We have mountains like that in Jersey also, courtesy of our landfills.

Nice lookin truck man. I really like the lift. Mine will have the Rough Country 4" on it soon with 35's. Mine's blue too, but it's the SLT with chrome bumbers. This gives me a good idea of what it will look like though. I'm in Alaska so I will even have snow covered mountains in the background...lol!

That looks great!! I have the same color, at stock height with 35s. always wondered how a 4in lift would look. The rancho sounds like a good design also, anyone know how it stacks up against the mopar/superlift?

Nice looking truck and beautiful mountains! As I've never had a lifted truck, how does the kit maintain factory driveline angles when truck went up?

Very nice! How long ago did you order that. Just wondering if they are still offering that deal.
