Default What type of lift should i get?

I have a 2002 Ford Ranger XLT 2wd and I was wondering what type of lift I should get for it. I don't do much off-roading much. I might go through a field here and there but that's about it. Any suggestions?

Yah there's a section for that. But since you have 2wd like me,, here's my setup, 3inch spindle lift 2 inch shackles for the rear. Been a year and no issues.

Nah you can have them, I have lift coils ready to install so spacers are useless. A few bucks for shipping is worth spreading the wealth

I'm only getting 2 inch. Anything higher than that won't work for the newer Rangers. Then hopefully soon if this job pulls thru I'll get spindles and 31" to give a bit more extra height
