i have a 1998 Ranger - which body lift do you prefer?

okay, i really want to get this body lift done before winter, i want to know if anyone prefers a certain one. i have a 98 ranger 4X4 5spd, stepside bed(not sure if that matters) i basically have no clue how to install a body lift, im not the greatest with working on cars, so i dont have the best knowledge, im relying on my friends to help, they have installed lifts on thier trucks and they know what they are doing, none of them have rangers though. i wanted to atleast make a desicion on what to get so i can get this thing moving along. thanks for any info you have, here is a recent pic of my truck taken today -

either is fine, they're the exact same thing. If you search the forums you can find threads were people posted tons of body lift install tips because it's pretty damn easy minus removing a few of the bolts.

If you have a few buddies helping out you should be able to get it done in a day. It's pretty simple to do.

Do yourself a favor and print the instructions from PA's website ahead of time so you'll have an idea of what you're getting into. Also-start spraying the bolts with PB Blaster NOW. You'll be glad you did both.

x2! saves you a lot of time although some bolts may need heat applied til they turn red then they'll come out like butter haha. i'd be willing to help, might be picking up a set of tires in nj in a few weeks I THINK
