You are assuming he has a 98+ 4x4.

We can't give you ANY information about modifications on your vehicle unless you give us some information to work with.

Year
Model (Ford Ranger, Explorer, B2, F150)
Engine size (displacement as well since there a ton ton of different V6s)
Drivetrain
XL, XLT, FX4, or Edge/Sport

judging by his name, he has an FX4, which would be both 98+ and 4x4, but you are correct it should have been stated.

I shouldn't have to lol, he's the one asking for help


Anyway, back on topic. Yeah Superlift makes 4 inch suspension lifts for Rangers. They are about $2000 new for the whole kit. You can get them used for $1200-$1500 and RCD also made a 4 inch suspension lift that goes for about $1000-$1500 used. You also need to factor new tires and rims. If you just do the 4 inch lift it you will need 15x8s and 33s (or equivalent) BUT if you get a $250 body lift on top of the suspension lift you can go up to 35s on 15x8s or 15x10s (or equivalent). The tires and rims new can run anywhere from $1200-$2500 depending on sizes and brands. If you get them used you could swing $800-$1500 depending on condition and brand.
