Icon9 Need help. Urgent.

I have a 98 ford ranger XLT 2wd 5 speed and I want 33" tires without a suspension lift. I want a 4" body lift and I was wondering everything I need to make it happen. Please reply

The kit, basic tools, PB Blaster, and a weekend.

My question is why the hell is this so urgent?

I was just diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. But what exactly is a PB blaster?

It'll help you break the body bolts loose. Spray it on the bolts a couple of days before you plan to start working. It's sort of like wd40.

^^ Seriously what is the rush? Why is this an urgent question? A body lift shouldn't be rushed.

Only 3" body lifts are available. You can run 33x10.5 slight trimming, but if you want to run 33x12.5 you will have to do a lot of trimming.

Google "Ford ranger body lift" and shop around. Most guys go with the PA kit.

Trimming is exactly what it sounds like. Trimming the fender around the tire area so you do not rub.

If you have the tools and do it yourself, it'll cost you about $150-200.
