So....i just sold my car now its time for a lift kit....please help!

So like the title says...i sold my car and now im ready to buy a suspension lift for my ranger. I have been looking at all of them...and some caught my eye more then others...


im really leaning towards the rough country 4" inch lift for 440.00 bucks

i was also looking at the bds 6"inch lift for around 900.00 bucks

i want the most bang for my buck here, i also have a 3 inch BL that i will be installing at the same time.....do you guys think i should go for the rough country or bds? pros cons to either any info will be greatly apprieciated!

x2! We need to know about your truck. I am guessing 97 or older since its a 4" kit and 6" kit and the prices are cheap. But I could be wrong.

Does SkyJacker still make a lift for a ’93 ?
I used one on my ’88 STX and it worked good, a lot of guys used SuperLift and Rough Country and they bent their Radius Arms when they hit hard off road.
BDS, I am not sure of so can’t say.

Also, just me, capitalize where necessary and punctuation at the end of a sentence.

Sorry for not using my grammar correctly, I'm just pretty excited about finally having the money to lift my truck. I was looking at the skyjacker kit, i just couldn't see spending a grand for a 6" lift. I mean i know its probably better quality and what not, but i plan on doing an SAS some time in the near future and won't need the lift anymore. I wound up buying the rough country 4" because of money...figuring i would have to buy tires, WELP i got a set of tsl super swampers FOR FREE...but that was after i already bought the lift so yea, I should have it to my door on wednesday. Hopefully have it installed on wednesday aswell, the shortly after doing the BL and put my tires on, that is if they'll clear?????
