I have the exact some stuff on the front end of my truck. You WILL need new uppercontrol arms. Just send an e-mail to those guys and they will send you a link to their online store. Honestly, you might want some bigger blocks. I ended up putting 3 in. blocks along with an AAL to get it looking right. I think it would look fine without the AAL though.

Hey Jim, your truck looks alot like mine, cept mines an FX4. Just got the body lift on this past weekend, the 35s went on today, and the 4" suspension lift goes on next weekend. I can't wait. Anyway, your truck looks good man. I'm glad to see people are still lifitin 2WDs. I had a 95 2WD with 6" Skyjacker, 3" bodylift, and 35" boggers. I miss that truck. Anyway, here's a shot of mine as is.

In my opinion, it was well worth it. I love driving my truck around now. I look back at stock pictures and cringe.

I put 2 inch lift coils in a 99 ranger and the truck drives and runs fine. It aligned fine at the local shop too. And the guy who owns the truck is not very nice to it and it doesnt top out easily. I wouldnt worry about needing upper arms, it is just a lot easier on the upper ball joints.
