Sound like maybe the 2" would require altercations to the manual stick boot? Possibly fan shroud issues? Like I said "greenhorn" mechanic. But I do enjoy it.
Hate to say it, but there isn't very much current advice going around about the 80s rangers. I've never really looked, so I'm not too sure about the archives on here for info. IMO, they had the best body style, but you really dont find too much in the way of lift info. For the newer generations, the body lift "kit" comes with drop brackets for the radiator to keep it in line with the fan and they come with a shifter extension. Both of these could be able to be home made in a matter of a few hours. Good luck with the lift.
