You obviously haven't checked the thread where I said "I told my husband I wanted a lift!" LMAO Hey, if I gotta keep ole Tater, better mod him to suit me. Add some mods, saves on a higher monthly payment on a stang.

You can do a suspension lift.

What are you wanting? BTW I dont know that I would buy that 120 body lift, id buy the one for your year truck from Performance Accessories. I can get you a link if you want.

Also I like the alcoa rims, Id run those with a 33x12.5x15. But what kind of look are you going for?

Not dumb. Many people have bought the cheaper one and made it work on the newer trucks. Personally I'd spend the extra for the right one, only because it makes it easier.

I'd like to put some bigger tires on and give it a lil height. Nothing astronomical. I heard some place and let me quote

Quote:
By just cranking the t-bars leveing the truck will allow you to run up to a 33" tire
If I don't have to do a body lift to through some bigger tires on, I don't want to do it. That money could be spent elsewhere.

Zach the 98-00 kit works perfectly on other years, you don't have to modify anything. It just bolts right up. The 98-00 kit has been proven to work on up to 08 Rangers.

You can run 32s without a body lift. 33s as well but its gonna rub in places even if you crank the tbars some. 32s shouldnt rub at all. I believe its a 32x11.5x15 that will work well.

I would recommend cranking the tbar bolt 4 times evenly per side. No more then go get an alignment.

Yes everything works. The only difference is the fuel filler hose, which its kind of hit or miss if its right or not, Ford randomly used 2 different diameter hoses. But that costs under 5 dollars at any auto parts store.
