Nah itís bone stock. If I fabricate some mounts I can put Jeep axels under the Mazda and ford ranger transmissions bolt straight onto the 4 cyl in my car I could make this thing like 6 inches taller

I don't think anyone on this forum is going to help you make a death trap like that. Given how similar the chassis is you could probably get a proper safe lift by using the subframes and suspension from a Ford Escape and it will probably be about the same effort or easier than the what you are purposing

I jus looking for any ideas I was gonna use the Danaís cause I have the 2 sets sitting around I lifted the car enough I can see where I could put mounts for the axles and springs I jus donít know where ima put the shocks. How it is now with just bigger tires is pretty safe just a smaller turning radius it being taller wouldnít make it a death trap eaither
