Since we can't have the Ranger Raptor here in the US, this might be the next-best thing.
The legendary Roush Performance is showing the midsize Ford Ranger pickup truck some love, partnering with another legendary firm, Fox Racing Shox, to introduce a heavy-duty off-road suspension for the Ranger. The suspension kit carries a price tag of $1,410 before tax and shipping costs, and it's been designed to give the Ranger up to two inches of lift at the front, helping level the suspension and allowing the truck to accommodate larger wheels and tires for even more off-road performance.
The kit comes with two adjustable front coil-over shocks with matched coil springs, two rear shocks with internal floating pistons, and two Fox mudguards to help keep the dampers well-protected.
Roush Performance, being one of the foremost US firms for aftermarket performance equipment, and Fox being among the premier off-road equipment specialists, the two companies didn't skimp out on quality. The new Roush/Fox Suspension Kit for the 2019-2020 Ford Ranger features CNC-machined aluminum-bodied dampers for superior corrosion resistance and heat dissipation. The front coil-overs are adjustable, allowing owners to dial-in from zero to two inches of extra ride height at the front of the truck.
Of course, apart from allowing the fitment of larger tires, a raised front ride height means more approach angle, a more comfortable ride on the road, and an aggressive stance.
Announced along with the new suspension kit, Roush Performance is also launching a set of durable Roush floor liners made by WeatherTech. Because if you're going to be spending more time off the pavement, the least you can do for your Ranger's carpeting is keep it well protected. These floor liners are rubberized and deep, to keep dirt, sand, and mud contained, and they feature identifying Roush badges. They carry a price tag of $238 before tax and shipping.
Roush isn't new to the Ford Ranger aftermarket parts game, having last year released a collection of new performance parts including an exhaust, a cold-air intake, and performance engine calibrations to go with them. We know plenty of US off-road fans that are dying for the Ford Ranger Raptor to make its way stateside, but until Ford relents, Roush has the next-best thing.
