need help on the net!!!

I have a 86 R/C. I'm trying to price 4" lift kits but I'm having problems finding them for 86 R/C. I find plenty of ones for new dodges, and jeep's. But I don"t need one for a new dodge or a JEEP!!!! The only one i have found for a R/C was a Trail Master. (69-93 1/2 & 3/4T PU, Ramcharger 4" $358) I found that one on Rocky Mountain Suspension Products. Is their any more!! If so where can I find them. Please help.

Take some good advice. Don't lift the truck they work well just the way we engineered them.All lifting it will do is cost you
a lot of money in broken parts...///GT

No disrespect meant to the Dodge engineer guy that already replied, but I've never had any problems with my 4" Rancho kit and the clearance it gives me has gotten me places that I would never have reached before without a lot of body damage. I would, however suggest a Skyjacker or similar brand that has lifted springs for the rear and stay away from the lift blocks like Rancho gives you, it's much safer. I buy from or just look through any off-road mag, they have tons of advertisers.

I own a skyjacker 4" lift system , new springs all around and I was able to eliminate the rear blocks. Remember you will have to
reshock. Drop pitman arm, longer front and rear brakelines are not neccessary but recommended. Will probably have to extend the
front driveshaft or a good time to install a selective drive from mile marker. I got the system from National Tire and Wheel cheaper than what Skyjacker was selling them for, Somwhere around 500 bones. In my opinion best system for the amount of money spent.
