I do want to eventually go off road! So I need a suspension lift.

----------

LOL one of my friends just told me I named my truck WAY wrong. She suggested I name it The KatMobile! I'll have to think about that!

That's what I figured, but like you said, if I want to go off roading that's the way to go, so time to save save save! What's the cheapest suspension lift one can get?

The Rough Country and Tuff Country state the suspension lift kits only fit 1983-1997 rangers! How do I find one for a 1999?

Check out some spindle lifts for a 99, a spindle is considered a suspension lift.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, but aren't spindle lifts for RWD trucks?

Don't think I would be doing any major off roading. First because I have no idea how to do the big stuff and second there's certainly no rock crawling places around here. I just want to be able to have some fun now and then on the weekends and not get stuck in the mud or in any of the back woods places they have. We have a couple of places that people put together on their property, like wooded areas, or farms that they water down the fields, and some parks that have off road trails.
