A suspension lift is better than a body wift for many different reasons but the most common problems with body lifts are; insuffecient cooling because the radiator and fan shroud is moved higher while the fan stays low. you can fix this by buying an electric fan, you truck will feel a lot more top heavy because your stock suspension is made to handle your trucks current height. you will also encounter problems with wiring harnesses getting loose, and your transmission linkage with be off slightly and may bind up if you get your truck flexed out in rocks or a wash out. a suspension lift wil ride better and handle the added height of your truck as well and will not have to problems listed above. body lifts are easier to install on some trucks, a ranger is not bad but you will need a sturdy jack/ jack stands and a buddy to help you cause everything dont always line back up and a little leverage goes a long way. the only bad things about a suspension lift is they are more difficult to install if your not familure with the suspension on your truck. on my 92 f150 4x4 they quoted 8 hours to install a 4" suspension but it look more like 12 but most of it was me doing it by my self. body lifts are cheap"112.00$" for a 94 excab ranger, and are easier to install but have handling problems along with other and you have those ugly gaps between your frame and bed and the back bumper hangs low as well because for most trucks they do not have bracket kits for them. good luck i hope you make the right decision for you and your truck.
