I'd say prerunner if you can afford to put a long travel kit on and cage it.. But since most can't, just lift it.

Umm, a prerunner kit? What you would get is a long travel kit and that will be probably around a min, of 3 grand plus at least a 1000 to install it if you don't have very good fab skills. And that would just be for the front end, if you wanted to put a long travel kit in the rear end it will be around the same amount but your gonna have to put ALOT of work into making a bed cage and I don't even know if you can install a long travel kit without caging your whole truck.

i was in the same predicament(think i spelled wrong). i just did a lot of research. i got a 99 ranger 2wd. the best bang for the buck is a kit called Doetsch Suspenion. they offer a 6in lift 3in coil 3in spindles for like 1100 for the 99 rangers.heres the link http://www.doetsch-shocks.com/9.asp. Zach the man who runs rangers recommended it to me and said its a reliable kit. My plans for mine is a locker and gear for the rear,33's, and the suspension lift. I already have a body lift. thats pretty much just for tire clearance. Just some advice. hope this helps some.

id really like a SAS but i dont have the three required things for it (time talent and MONEY)
I really like the thought of about 4-6'' of lift with 33's so i think thats what im gonna do.
What do you guys think of wheel spacers, my dad says if i do a lift he wants me to put wheel spacers so it will keep my center of gravity a little lower but then agin my dad dont really know a what hes talkin about.So all help is apreciated.

What you should do I think is think about it, are you gonna be having your Ranger for a long time? Is it really worth it to lift it and pump lots of money into an older truck at your age? I personally think no, I wanted to lift my Ranger when I was younger but now I don't want to. I am going to sell it and get a full size truck and keep it stock because I don't need a lifted truck.

im on the same bus mike...im gonna lift mine with a 3" BL and just run 31x10.5r15 tires...the tires should help a little extra since they are taller and they will be wider so that will help.

i heard that wheels spacers are death doughnuts bc they can snap off...just my .2 cents

i'd just lift it and run some 33's..

i got an "old" 1993 ranger as well and im going to lift it prolly 6 inches suspension and 3 inch bodylift and run 35's eventually as there is plenty of mountains out here to run on.. but im also 4x4 too. but for now i was just thinking of getting a 3 inc body lift and run some 33's.. ive had 31's on my truck and they are already but dont really give ground clearance and i can fit them at stock height.

just my .02... lift it and some 33's.. and then put a more "aggressive" front bumper on it cuz stock sucks... haha.. or even custom make a bumper. i like the looks of the 93-97 rangers without the front bumper on them.. it looks cool!!

someone should photoshop his truck with a 6 inch lift and 33's just to give you an idea of what it would look like.

dude, you might be able to do a SAS cheaper or about the same price as a 4" lift, although im not sure how much 4" lifts are for 2wd rangers.. If you do the work yourself, You should be able to do a sas for no more than 1500 bucks..
