we need more info... what year ranger and how involved do you want to get. theres "bolt on applications and "kits" that are pretty involved as far as enginecage fabrication, and engine bay/ fire wall modification

i have a 06 ranger and the whole engine cage thing wont be a problem if i have to get one to support my suspension mods thats the least of my worries and i plan on doing tube front anyways because i want to run a fiberworx kit im just looking for advice from people who know more about products and kits out there and like ive said before i would like 18 inch travel minimum i mean 18 is fine with me but the bigger the better and reliability it key like i said i know kits cost more than the ranger its self so i really dont wont to be replacing stuff soon after installation and im not doing a baja 1000 or anything and any racing i just want to build a truck that can take what i throw at it wich isnt much because i live in florida and would mainly drive trails and just have fun on ruts and jumping it but nothing crazy

Don’t buy into the “more travel is better” mentality.
Don’t get me wrong, it can be, but it seems like everyone’s new standard is 18” these days for kits. Most ranger kits on the market won’t pull 18” but the good news is, you can haul ass with anything more than 12” if you take the time to tune your shocks.

You won't get 18" of travel from that truck unless you cut off the whole front half and put something else on. If you've got $30k to spend on front suspension alone then you'll be able to get 18" all you want.

Well with rangers its a given you need to cut a few things but 18” isnt really that uncommon. You buy a kit with new uppers and lowers build/buy a shock hoop slap a coilover in it, do some bracing and there you go you can pull as much travel as your kit or coilover is limited to. Im pulling 18 with a 4wd so 2wd should be a walk in the park compared to my setup.
