well the BL cost 160-180. doing it yourself with some friends is Free

get the lift and make a Body Lift Meet thread. Im sure some guys with the tools and know how can help. not to mention there is plenty of info here on FRF to help:

It's really up to you. I love the look of the black Dick Cepek's, and I REALLY wanna buy a set myself. Once I get the money I'm doing 3in BL, Dick Cepeks, and GoodYear Duratracs. But I'm sure that will change once I see other people's trucks and get more ideas.

----------

Sonic Edge is selling a 3in BL. http://www.fordrangerforum.com/class...y-lift-al.html Might want to check it out.

body lift really doesn't look bad if it is done properly and the right actions taken. With your motor and gearing combo, your prolly going to need to regear for those bigger tires. You might get lucky and get away with it depending on the size but id say the truck will be a dog if you don't.
