Default lifted ranger vs bagged?

for those who have there rangers lifted, or even bagged how do you like them?

I would prefer a lift, but mine is only 2wd. So I don't think there's much point to lift mine.

how much did it cost you guys with the bagged rangers to do pretty much everything?? Thinking about lowering mine...maybe...

----------

also what are good sights for the parts?

If you want to bag it, look to spend at least $3000 for everything.

as said about 2500-3000 for new you can get it cheaper used stuff but if your deciding on this you must take into gas mileage too

I prefer lifted, I like the bagged ones too if its done nice like Caspers ride. Just because its 2wd doesnt mean you cant lift it a little. STL's truck is 2wd, he cranked the bars and did a body lift and added bigger tires. It all depends on what you're into man. Do what you like, it's your truck

well, my tire's are so big if i hit too big of a bump they rub in the fender wells. But i like the sporty ideal of bagged trucks. But then again, with a truck that low winter would suck, and couldn't offroad nither.

i wanted to get it painted a good black with silver racing stripes down the middle, like one the guy's on here. But for that much money i might as well buy a new truck. i was hoping around 1200 or 1500 for everything. haha. owell.

my cousin had a ranger just like mine, and he told me he suped his up and put parts from a sprint car in the engine. supposebly he topped out at 195 mph. then sold it to some kid, and the kid rapped it around a tree. but if i were to lower he would help me with the engine and everything. but i like to be country, and with a lowerd truck i couldnt go to my land and drive down to the pasture to go fishin an huntin. So probally lift.
