4 inch rancho lift installed

I finally got my lift on its been a long time but thanks for all the advice guys. The next step is to get some 35s here next week. I will post some more pics then. I got the rs5000 shocks and my airbags are still in its the perfect setup for me. Let me know what you guys think.

looks really nice, if I were to get a lift, it would be a 4" Rancho. Are those pretty much install and it never comes off again permanent?

Pretty much yes. You have to cut some pieces off but I guess if you really wanted it off you could weld the pieces back on.

Nice work...the 35's will look great on there. I heard the Rancho lift was no longer available? Did you pick it up used somewhere? If so, good on you...there should be a bunch of used suspension lifts for our body style out there by now.

I believe you guys are correct. They are still available for 2009 and up mine is a 2010 so mine is new. I think there was a thread posted a while back about rancho discontinuing the lift for the 04 to 08 body style

Yep...stopped in early January of this year. The latest I saw someone get one was in March. It is a shame they discontinued them for 04-08 trucks.

Why are the lift kits for 4wd only? That may be a stupid question, but it's a real one. lol
