Hi, My name is (name), I drive a (year) (2 or 4wd) ranger. Could you recommend me a good lift? I am most interested in (either looks or offroading ability) and I am interested in (size of tires, a little bigger than stock? 33 inch or 35 inch?) and will I need to get the rear differential regeared, what ratio?
I don't know the answer by the way, because I have 4wd. But the bigger the better.

well if you want to go all out...camburg or dixon bros.

if you are on a limited budget a spindle lift, coil lift or body lift (as a last resort for woop sections)

whats your budget?

The 4 bangers had 2 spark plugs per cyclinder. 4 x 2 = 8 spark plugs total.

My dad thought that too when we first found my truck lol.

hmm...can probably run 33" tires...and i would suggest a 15x8 wheel with 4.5" backspacing or less, and you need a bolt pattern of 5 x 4.5

why would you go for the new shock hoop? run dual reservoir?

what if you just went with a simple body lift since you have 2wd it would look nice with some 31x10.50 BFGoodrich tires? allterrain, mud terrain.. Id say since you like offroading get the mud terrains they last almost as long as the a/t's do and look A LOT better, more aggressive and as for rims its all up to you really, but make sure you go with 15x7's or 15x8's.. good luck and id like to see some pics of the truck.

2 different sparks, one for low end torque, and one for high end rev fuel efficiency.

Why did you buy the FabTech? I am just curious. Of all the companies out there, you picked the worst one to run with?

There are many companies that make lifts for your 94 2wd but for the 2000 there are less. The ttb has been supported more than the sla 2wd. I chose the fabtech because I did not NEED the camberg kit, it may be better but it wasn't necessary. So besides the 2 i mentioned there was either rough country or tough country. Something like that. I like the fabtech lift and would recommend it. I had no problems putting it on and have had none in the almost 2 years it has been installed.
