personally i would go for a 2001 to a 2003, ford fx4 level II cause they give alot more options and from what i hear they have the limited slip rear end with 4.10 gears. and if you get a manual i think the level II comes with a manual transfer case. and it looks really cool. and you won't have to mess hubs. i believe they switched out the vaccum hubs in that year and when you lift it and put 33s on it it won't bog down cause of the gear ratio. but thats just me and im not sure if im being completely accurate on the package with the truck. so anyone correct me if im wrong.

Welcome!
I'm thinkin about getting a secondary beater ranger and from what I've seen the 94-97 rangers are cheap, and not to mention you can get a 4 inch lift for it for around 450$!! But if your bud has money to blow than your better off going with an fx4 level II
