Post 4 in. suspension lift.

i have a 1997 ranger and want to lift it. i found a 4inch lift from rough country for a decent price. i would like to know what are some thoughts and if i should even do this in the first place. i would like to pre runner it but cant find a cheap pre runner kit. any help is appreciated. thanks.
