well depends if you want 4x4 or not. pretty much all 2wd's are pretty cheap to list compared to a 4x4. 98+ 4x4 rangers are the most expensive to lift. before 98 4x4 rangers aren't that bad to lift but still more expensive than the 2wd's i think. on every ranger (regardless of year or 4x4) you have the option of a 3" body lift which is only $250.

98+ 4x4 your lookin at $1500+
pre 98 4x4 your lookin closer to $1000 (i think)
2wds you can get a suspension lift for as cheap as $500 or so (i think.. i'm not exactly how sure the fabtech spindles and stuff are)
i wish fabtech spindles worked on 4x4's sooo bad

You can do coiled 2wd's. Or get a TTB suspension Ranger. 83-97 are the years for those suspension setups.

Go with what Tyler said... 83-97 was all TTB... But I think in 93-97 they used upgraded front end TTB vs the previous years. So if I had to say, I would say a 97 4wd
