Lift help (newbie)

hi everyone...i have a 1998 ranger and i've been thinking about lifting it. i definitely don't have the first clue about this stuff but after looking on the internet and on this site, i've seen alot of neat stuff.

i'm not sure i would be able to afford a suspension lift, so i guess my question is if a 3 inch body lift could give me the look I want.. i've come across pictures that have a 3 inch body lift with 33" tires that look pretty solid...

can anyone post links to trucks with only body lifts (no suspension lift) that i could check out??

also, if i were to do a body lift now, would it be possible to get a suspension lift later?

thanks for all help...

with a body lift i dont think it matters , and yes it would clear 33" with some triming depending on on 2WD or 4x4 . Everybody i here likes the Performance Accesories 3 inch lift the only thing you need with it is shift linkages only if your manual trans though .

Three newer pics. The rear sits a little lower now with the cap on and the leaf springs need to be replaced.

One of mine. 99 4x4 with a 3" Body Lift and 33x12.5" tires. Also, yes you can get a suspension lift later. Lot of people do it that way. They modify completely different aspects of the truck.
