Default new truck

hey whats up guys i got a few questions before i get my ranger. I'm looking to lift it and be able to fit 35inch wheels on it and i want to know what is the best truck i should get and how i should lift it. i also want you to keep in mind that the truck i will be getting will be probably around a $2000 because this is my first truck. to lift it also i have a budget of around $300 to $500 i already have the 35inch wheels because of a friend who moved and just gave them to me. So i would really like some response on what i should do with this.

it depends on certain things, not really models i think. like the difference between the twin-beam front suspension and the IFS front suspension, year specific lifts, 2wd or 4wd, different types of lifting, and quality of the products used to lift. what kind of lift are your looking at? what kind driving do you plan on doing?
