Lift questions

I want about 18 inches to 2 feet of travel in my suspension and the room to mount 33-35x 12.5 tires on my 94 ranger, and i was wondering what you guys would recomend.

also i had some more questions:
1 what's the difference between suspension and body lifts
2 what are the advantages/ disadvantages between them
3 what are the advantages/ dis advantages between hydrolic, and nitro shocks, and ones with reservoirs

What kind of travel are you looking for? Are you wanting the kind of travel for rocky terrain or prerunner type travel?

Lots of travel is expensive. Its even more expensive when it has to hold up to a thrashing at 40 mph.

40mph isnt even fast....i can do that all day long over woops as long as they are spaced right and not for dirt bikes..those get pretty bumpy lol....but i guess it also depends on how big the woops are....
