Hello

Hello my name is jeremiah i have a 2001 ford ranger 3.0 V6 that has over 200,000 miles on it and still runs like a champ im currently in the process of replacing the clutch on it which has been a chore but overall not too bad i have owned the truck over two years and it has amazed me more times than i can count im a college student so i dont have much money so im interested in cheap mods right now.... currently wondering about a small suspension lift that is cheap if there is such a thing out there?
im a pretty nice guy overall so if you ever feel the need to send me a message feel free too :)

Welcome to R-F Jeremiah. Dang thats alot of miles for an 01. Suspension lifts aren't cheap. you'd be better off w/ a body lift. if your looking for the best bang for the buck.

Hello. If you are looking for a small lift, go with a 3" BL. A lot of people here have them and you should be able to fit some 33's.

Howdy. Welcome from North GA! A suspension lift will cost you at least $500 in parts a body lift will cost about $200.

what kinda clutch did you end up going with? while your in there i recommend replacing that ***** the slave cylinder, trust me and the thousands of other members that told me to replace it and i didn't and a week later i had to pull the whole entire trans out again and replace it. So spend the extra 80 or so bucks to just get a new one. And oh yeah any pics lol

Yeah i totally did replace the slave cylinder because i have heard so many people saying that i might as well do it and as fun as dropping that transmission was(haha not ) i'd lkike to avoid having to do that again

and as far as the mileage i got the truck with right around 160,000 on it from a pest control business who just got a new truck and i got a really good deal on it only paid 1000 for it because they couldnt figure out what was wrong with it turns out the fuse for the fuel pump was blown so for like a nickel i fixed the problem and yeah i have just been keeping up the maintence since :)
