Most people will lower a 2.3L 2wd ranger. Some have lifted them. Depends on the look you want to go with. I would lower it. If you want to lift one, pick up a 4x4 with a 4.0L

Something else to consider since you are putting a new front end on.. a lot of people like the look of the 01-03 front ends. You need replace the header panel, grille, headlights, hood and bumper, (I think the fenders are the same.. I could be wrong).. but it looks a lot better than the 93-97 rangers in my opinion.

Only reason I say lower it btw is becuase you have a 4 cylinder and it probably gets decent mpgs.. lifting it and putting on bigger tires will kill mpgs and power in your truck. Just stuff to consider, it's your truck.. make it your own style. Just don't put hood scoops on it.
