Few lift questions.

So im not new to TBB lifts but the torsion is a whole different ball park. In about a year ill most likely be buying another ranger preferably a 2001-2003. now my question.

I want to lift it but nothin crazy, its either a 3" BL or a 4" suspension i only want to fit 32's maybe 33's because ill still be commuting to college. i know BL's are cheaper and would be a little simpler to install. I will not be doing any wheel so im really think towards just a BL.

Your input would be great guys thanks.

I would just go with a body lift. if u paint ur frame black you won't really be able to see it "hang" down. I have one and i like it. i take it off road too every once in a while and it does fine.

no problem. Its pretty easy to install. when i got my kit in the mail i was clueless at what to do. i did the bed in like 15 minutes but i had someone from RF help me do the cab cuz i was clueless. it was easier than i thought though. there are minor tedious things that you have to do liek the steering extension, lengthening the grounds, etc but its simple to do if u take ur time.
