Question lifted 03 Explorer sport trac?

Hello, I am thinking about lifting my 03 sport trac. It is a 4x4. i just wanna get some ideas on what would be the best way to lift it. i would like to atleast fit 33's under it. Also if you have pictures i would be more than happy to see them to get some ideas.
Thanks for you're help, mike.

Depends on your budget..

Personally I would go with a long travel kit, but they are pricy. Look up Dixon Bros racing.

A cheaper/generic option would be your normal pro comp, superlift, etc.

I would take a look around www.explorer4x4.com and see what they like. It's a pretty good board for explorer/ranger based vehicles

The only company that i have found that has a lift kit specifically for an 03 sport trac is super lift. Do you know of any companies that will work. And thanks ill have to try those other boards out.

I'm pretty sure anything ranger from the same years will work.

yes, ranger or explorer will work. Same chassis. RCD use to make a badass 5.5" lift, they dont no more

there are a couple running around the tri city area.....both on a body lift with 33's. i don't like body lifts but both of them look good on 33" tires tho'
