3" body lift is the cheapest. Anything else is pretty pricey.

----------

As for suspension you can do shackles in the back and crank your torsion bars. Thats pretty cheap, the tbar crank is free, but you wont get more than 2" of lift. Im pretty sure the 93's have it, someone correct me if im wrong.

If you trim and regear yeah.

You can stuff em in and they will rub some but if you trim youre good.

Theres suspension kits out there, they just cost 1000+ And with 35's youre really going to want to regear too. Not a lot have 5's on, and i dont know a lot, but you could talk to shane aka Fx4wannabe. Hes got a sick truck with 35s on er

for 35's you'll probably need a 4+" suspension lift as well. to clear 35's you'll have to lift the body about 6".

ummmm sorry to bust in here but if your in a 93 ranger you have twin I beam suspension, meaning no torsion bars, you have a whole different set up than the 98 and newer rigs. for you im not sure how much you would need for 35s but probably about 6 inches or so.

when i had an old ranger i got james duff stuff for it, it used to be a solid product, havent heard about them in years, but i think super lift makes a good product as well as skyjacker.

one of the big differences you will see in performance will be getting extended radius arms, as opposed to a drop kit.

He doesn't have twin I beams its a 4x4 he has a ttb. Easiest and cheapest lift is f150 coils in the front stacked leafs in the rear and a 3" bl. That will fit 35"s
