Yeah im excited to see that suspension kit available. Hopefully we don't have to wait to long to get our hands on a set.Icon Vehicle Dynamics makes some seriously quality suspension kits, I've experienced their stuff for the Jeep Wrangler. The Baja Forged Ranger from SEMA that admin posted has an Icon suspension lift kit.

Think about a Tacoma with less power and no turbo to makeup for higher altitude and four less gears. Lots of Tacoma guys seem to do just fine so I think the ranger will do just fine as well.I'm just worried how a lift and big tires are going to be with the 2.3L. I've driven lifted trucks before, but always with a diesel or big V8 to push those heavy tires around.
The only trucks that feel the same stock vs lifted are the Canyon/Colorado Diesel and the Nissan Frontier.I'm just worried how a lift and big tires are going to be with the 2.3L. I've driven lifted trucks before, but always with a diesel or big V8 to push those heavy tires around.
Curious why the Ranger will be able fit the same tires as other vehicles with less of a lift? Does it have more fender clearance from the factory than the competitors?That said, the rear gearing on the Ranger will determine more about how it feels lifted than anything. The Canyon/Colorado V6 starts to feel sluggish lifted and the 2.3L in the Ranger is pretty much on par from a torque standpoint. That said, it also won't take as much lift with a Ranger to fit the same tires as the higher lifts on other vehicles. This reduces weight which plays into it a bit as well.
It could be a multitude of reasons. From larger wheel well openings to different backspacing or offset of the wheel. All of these can determine how big a tire and wheel will fit.Curious why the Ranger will be able fit the same tires as other vehicles with less of a lift?

Wheel wells are usually the largest determining factor. For instance, an F-150 with 6 inches of lift can easily fit 35s with no rubbing. The same year GM 1500 will require 7 inches of lift and some front bumper valance trimming to fit 35s without rubbing.Curious why the Ranger will be able fit the same tires as other vehicles with less of a lift?
