up or down?

ive got a 94 mostly stock 2.3 5 speed. just an intake and sitting on 17s. i love the look of 94s sittin low to the ground but i also love the prerunner 94s before i go and spend a bunch of cash on suspension. im wondering if yall think i should slam it or jack it up?

me personally I love them jacked up. I especially loves the looks that I get when people see my ranger lol. I just think rangers look so good with either 33's or 35's you dont have to go really high because they arent a huge truck. Heres a pic of mine on 33's. but the suspension is different than yours since it is ifs. The only problem I see with your truck is that it is a 2.3. But in the end, the choice is yours. If you have any questions, feel free to ask.




And here it is next to a stock height 03 ranger 4x4

Ya I agree, you might have to regear and that may be more than you really want to get into

I lifted my 2.5L on 33's. If you regear it will be fine.

you two get outta here!!!!! lol

seriously though if you did lift it and threw a larger tire on there you would benefit from a re gear. of course,
(insert brain ninja here) there is always the turbo route......
