Yes, or you could save 1200 dollars and just get a body lift. But thats just what I would do.

PA and Summit brand are the same, you can get the summit one for $120 or the PA for $200. You can run a 33x12.5 fine, I'm running 32s still and it doesn't look too bad IMO. Also if you ever want to go bigger in the end you'll need to get a BL anyway.

I've seen a few body lifted Rangers at work and That alone just doesn't do. They would look good if topped off with the suspension lift.

I would choose suspension.

What do you plan on doing with your truck?
If you are going to wheel it hard, I would go with a suspension lift first. This will get you better ground clearance because everything will be up higher, not just the body(as with a body lift). You will get better suspension travel, better flex etc. If you can, I would try to find an RCD lift, it replaces the torsion bars with coilovers. But for sure get 33's under there, regardless if you have a body lift or suspension.

If you can also, I would go with a body lift, and a suspension lift. Get some 35's under there.

Don't SAS if you haven't done your research.

Honestly, for what it sounds like you'll do with it, your best result would be superlift and 33's

Alright, I was just considering the bumper because my stock one has a piece missing from an @$$hole who hit my car while I was parked in a parking lot.
