Bolt on lifts?

Ok, here's my background info. I've had this '76 Scout II for about 4 years now. It's pretty much stock, and has the usual rust. I'll have someone install all the body parts for me since I do not weld or fabricate.

Here's my question. Are there any bolt on suspension lifts that do not require welding or fabricating? I've heard of the 4" Triangle, but it sounds like the response isn't that great. Doesn't Rancho make a kit also? I searched their site but found nothing. All I'm wanting is enough to run 33" tires with enough room to for play, however this is primarily going to be an every-other-day driver.

Re: Bolt on lifts?

I think the Triangle lift is the best route to go, bolt-on wise. I had a 4" Skyjacker lift and tossed the rear springs into my parts-pile and went with a rear SOA instead.

The Triangle lift will bolt right on with no modifications needed. sells 'em, as does

You may need to lower your bump stops to keep 33s from rubbing while off-road.. but for around town, you'll probably be just fine.

Consider a 1" body lift while you're having the rust repaired - that'll solve most of the tire rub problems.

Thanks for the reply Tom. Yeah, I was already thinking about the 1" body lift when I'm getting the body mounts put back on. You're probably right, for what I want the Triangle should probably do just fine.
