Question 95 ranger lift kit [most bang for your buck]

i have a 1995 4.0L 5 speed 4x4 and im looking for a lift kit for it. it needs to be 4+ inches, suspension lift, include all shocks, all springs (rear-leaf front-coil), pitman arm, and steering stabilizer and would like the whole kit to be less than 1000 bucks. so far this is the only full kit i could find for under a 1000 bucks and it looks good just wanted to know what everyone recommends and opinions on this lift kit.

You get what you pay for, I'd say that kit will work, but I have seen blocks fall out if you go that route. I'd save and pay for a kit that is going to last for certain. my 2 cents. I'm looking at a kit myself.

Rough Country for the win! I would personally run a block in the rear if it's only 4 inches. Done it before in a fullsize. There was axle wrap but nothing to the point of carnage. Rough countrys materials are heavy duty shit.

those blocks probably came off cuz the bolts were not tightened down right. and plus blocks are blocks that could happen with any kit

blocks come out all the time and since his truck is a 4wd it has 2-2.5" factory blocks in it already. personally i would not run that large block and sure as hell would not stack these blocks with the stock ones. the kit linked is fine however i would just grab a set of add a leafs or stack another set of leafs in the rear
