98-00 are the same all around. What are you looking to do with it exactly?

check out www.stuffforyourranger.com


EDIT: There are similarities between 97 and 98 such as engine and interior. Big change would be front clip and suspension.

2wd or 4wd? 98- present all have the same suspension. There are 2 types of suspensions, coil sprung and torsion bar. Torsion bar is found on 4wd and some 2wd, coil only on 2wd.

Alright so you have the cheap way, which is a 3" body lift. 98+ will work. Check www.summitracing.com for that. Or the expensive way, a suspension lift, you have the 4" super lift. RCD had a 5.5 that has been discontinued.
