Do a SAS other then that you have a leveling kit option, and a 3in boy lift option

Solid Axle Swap, there isnt very many options for your truck as far as lifting it. you could do a 3in body lift and change your front springs out with some jeep or f150 springs to level it out sorta get close to your goal

2wd rangers are really easy to turn into prerunners... well relitivaly compaired to 4x4.

Its according to what you are lifting it for. If you are lifting it for looks go for somthing that will lift the body not the frame. If you want to go offroad then lift the frame and not the body for ground clearence.

If it was me and being on a budget I would look at doing the some leveling coils (rough country I believe) and the AAL in the rear. Next I would get some good 31 AT's and run that. I would save up a bit and in a few months get the 33s and a BL.

AAL- Add A Leaf (goes in the leaf spring pack giving rear suspension lift, does the same basic job of a shackle)
BL- Body Lift (goes between the cab and frame lifting the body off the frame allowing for larger tires)

it would be about the same you can get AAL in a 2in lift same as the shackle, as for the front if you want to go cheap you can try some Jeep, older F150 coils, some new coils, or spacers. Check this out for some front options-> http://www.therangerstation.com/tech...elingkits.html
