Post 1996 Ranger xlt

I have had a Ranger since I have been driving my dad bought it in 1996 and when i was 18 he gave me the truck it has 126 thousand miles and the transmission slips like crazy other than that it is fine. I just got the truck paint i went from green to black and i'm ready to put a lift kit on it. If anyone has any ideas of what kind of lift to get i have a 3.0L 2wd extended cab and im looking for something that will give me the prerunner look?

Welcome to FRF, do you want just the look or the function as well?

He has a good point, you should definitely look at getting the tranny fixed before throwing larger tires on it.
