Default HeyO Lift it or slam it?

So I am new to the sight and I have been wondering weather I should slam my 4L V6 4x4 ranger or if I should lift it. Can anyone help me decide or convince me to go either way?

4x4 with Ibeams all you are going to get is a 2" drop on the front, 98+ with torsion bars 3" front drop max. these numbers are with keeping the 4wd parts.

What do you plan on doing with it? Daily driving? Freeway or city? Off-roading?

It's crazy that you're even asking us... what do you like/dislike about each option... you're the one who has to drive it every day... I say don't touch it till you decide what YOU want to do...

if you have a 98 than you have the torsion bar suspension the last year for ibeams on a ranger was 97.

its a golden rule that you dont slam a 4x4 becuase its a complete waste of getting one so either sell it if you wanna slam it and if you wanna keep it lift that mofo!! and take off the stupid 20"s and sell em and get some 33"s on it
