2004 ranger xlt suspension

i want to give my ranger a little boost but not so much that it makes the truck look funny or to where i have to start ripping stuff out and putting new stuff in. are 1.25 or 2 inch torsion keys the way to go or is a body lift with beefier tires the way?

you crank your stock keys up, which does the same thing as replacement keys. a body lift with tires is a good idea too, and would be an easy way to get 3" lift and 32" tires to fit.

for future reference, please use the search button in the top right of your screen. this has been covered a thousand times.

Cranked bars, 1" body lift, 265-75R16s (almost a 32" tire). Avoid the torsion keys.
