'99 Ranger XLT 4x4 Off Road

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum so I apologize for potentially starting a new thread about something that has been discussed previously. I am looking for some input on whether to do a body lift or a suspension lift. In all honesty cost is a big factor to me and I will not be doing a lot of crazy mudding/off roading in the truck if that info helps. The changes will be more for asthetics than anything else. I've narrowed down my wheel/tire choice to the factory rims and BFG MT's 31x10.5x16. I am assuming that a 3" body lift will work with my wheel/tire choice, but would a 4" suspension lift and no body lift be better in the long run?

You can run that tire size stock.

with a 3'' body lift you can run 33's

theres a few SL's for sale on this site for about a grand, otherwise a body lift is only a few hundred. both look good on rangers.

i run 33's on my truck with just the t bar's cranked up and new leafs/shackles in the back.

Yeah 31x10.50r15 will go on nicely with no mods.

quick question-if you got new tbars-can you crank them all the way right when there installed? will this add additional wear to them? I mean are there limits?
