i know when you put on a body lift you also have to raise the bumpers with brackets. i have a ranch hand style bumper, can they also be raised for a body lift?

the ranch hands just bolt to the brackets that the stock bumper does anyways.... if i remember right... and since you have a 93 you have the accordian framehorns.... would really probably just take some flat 1/4" steel braketsdrilled to match the origional holes and then some holes 3" up from those holes to get it to line up normal if that makes sense.... maybe these new 1/4" brackets doulbed up on each side... if that makes sense


her's a pic of johnski's rig that shows the origional bumper mounting points
they are the flat pieses that com off the inside of the frame rail like "l" brackets with the two slotted holes... that's what you are dealing with

I did it to mine. Although i dont have a ranch hand. I have a warn bumper. If you have the crumple zone, i am not sure if this will apply to you.
