RANGER 4X4 susp.lift & TTB v/s IFS ? opinions

I have a 96 xlt 4X4 with TTB, 4.0L, it is new to me, it is my third ranger, second one that I am starting to modify, I am starting with a 4" BDS susp/lift, I would like to get some opinions and suggestions, also interested in experiences with both TTB & IFS. Thanks for your commentary.

Jess

Welcome to the site, this might fit better in the suspension section we have. What do you wanna know? TTB can be a pain to get aligned, keep that in mind. According to the BDS site the only kit that comes up is a 6" suspension lift, not 4". Do you have a link or something?

Seeing as your from Cali what are your plans? LT, mud truck, mall crawler? If you want to have a prerunner this kit might not be what you want. If all you want is a lifted 4wd to hit trails then it seems like it would be a good choice.


Mods can we move this to the proper section?

thanks for your reply, I would like my truck to be a little of everything, I know if i want to rock crawl or desert dunes, I would look into something more exteme towards the terrain, but I want to be able to hang with most in desert, woods, rocky terrain, or tag along on a baja SCORE trip, so I feel I want to be somewhere in the middle of everything, which i'm thinking shouldn't be too hard as long as I have a moderate amount of clearance, wheel travel, tires, and armor. The BDS 4" suspension lift is same as 6" except for the radius arms, the stock ones are used since it is only 4" (bds-suspension.com) I plan on running 31's, since truck is spending most of the time on highway, but I am not settled on tire size yet or whether to go steel or aluminum wheels. If my truck looks the part it better perform, don't like to just look offroader, need to be capable. TTB seems like a tougher choice over IFS with more travel, I am stuck with TTB so I hope I am right. So I need to post this in another section? looks like note is meant for admin, thanks again for your time and input. Forgot to take pre lift photos, the ranger on my avatar is my second ranger that sold in 07 had 33's with only torsion tweek, custom side exit exhaust and cherry bomb, onboard compressor, front and rear custom steel bumpers, & skid plates, my current ranger is coming soon along with a series showing my progress, long winded message??? i'll look into keeping them shorter. :)

Thanks for the honesty, haven't had a chance to get on, but I have 4" BDS lift installed, and looking to get some 32's, not decided on brand or A/T, M/T?? M/T's look better, Looking for wheels aswell I want to take it out and use it so leaning towards steel. How do i change thread to suspension section?
