Personally sticking to the topic, I think your truck would look alright with a bodylift but at this point you need a paintjob before you lift your truck. If you spend whatever $100 or more it's that much less that could be going toward the new paintjob.

guess ill go against the grain here, what else is new?
with 34" tires, i would put the BL on. lots(and i mean TONS) of guys are runnin 33's w/a BL and thier tires dont look too small. i think the 34's jus look too stuffed in there.
i say BL it with gap guards and a bull bar. your steps will help cover the frame under the cab, the bull bar will help up front. and gap guards will take care of the wheel openings.

oh, and i LOVE the two-tone. will be sad to see it go.

dont do a body lift. i personally hate the look of a BL but love the look of stuffed tires. too much of a gap looks goofy i think. especially w/ show cars.

id think that it would look good with the body lift i love that style that u got now if i could do the same i would and if u had some more height u will stick out more and give ur tires some breathing room especialy with 34" tires wile everyone has 33's with there BL. then a bull bar and kc's.
i think it will look good or maby u cna just do the 2" lift someone else did it here and it looked good.

ive got my body lift and ive got gap guards, it has seriousely fooled so many people who thought it was all suspension, i personally hate body lifts but the ranger actually looks good, your truck looks way to stuffed with those 34's and no lift, id say do it with some gap guards and only with gap guards, never put a bull bar on your truck, show or not, they are just stupid......
