do a spindle lift since you are 2wd looks so much better.

He has a bodylift. Us 4x4er's get bodylifts cause the cheapest suspension lift is $1800.

PA(Performance Accessories) makes the just about one and only bodylift for the new rangers. Its 199 and extra for the shifter extension. The spindle lift runs about $600 or more I think.

My pics:



I had a 02 4x4 Edge w/ 3" BL, AAL and torsion crank on 33x12.50's.

BLs are retarded on a 2 wheel drive. If you want a good looking lift go with the spindle. It isnt any more expensive and it will actually lift your suspension insted of faking it!

All these pics and opinions are great and all, but remember you are a 2wd xlt, you dont have t-bars to crank so you wont be as tall as half these guys and fitting the tires you want is going to be a little harder, in the end i would do a body and spindle ift, its money but it will get you up to where you wanna be. you 'll probably need to add a leaf too

FYI a spindle lift doesnt "lift the suspension", its as much "faking it" as a body lift. you will get more clearance underneath with spindles though, that is undeniable.
