Is it a 2WD?

Do you want effective prerunner suspension? Or a good looking mall crawler, so to speak?

You could invest in a long-travel suspension kit. It's not gonna be cheap, but it will be fun.

yea LT is the way to go but it really wont be cheap. a decent "midtavel" kit will also cost a pretty penny. do you have an idea of what you want? do alot of research.

Yes^ you have to read a lot. Search and you will find what you need.

And the picture you have posted is what I am referring to as effective prerunner suspension.

Mall-crawler prerunners are as follows:




These Rangers actually have flipped shackles in the rear, making the rear lower than the front to get the prerunner "look".

Performance wise, they suck.
