Yea they will work. I'm almost positive you can do all three. But hopefully someone will chime in to back me up, or correct me.

I had both on my truck and IMO it looks great.
The way the suspension lift on that trucks is it uses drop brackets to lower the entire front suspension 4". You can install torsion bar keys along with the lift kit, but they will not yield the lift they say they will.

This is the lift kit for his model year truck.

Now do I really need to do a suspension lift? Now that I have gained knowledge of both styles of lifting, is it really necessary to spend 1800 dollars vs. 300? Im not really going to be doing any sort of crazy off roading, just some basic mudding. Do I really need that extra ground clearance from a suspension lift or can I get by with just a body lift and bigger tires?

Depends on what you want to do with your truck. I hate bodylifts they have no place on trucks short of a 1" to clear larger motors/trans combos. Its not a real lift. You can clear just as big tires as a bodylift cutting the fenders out.

How would this set up work? What would you do differently , or what things should I add to make this a worthy investment on my truck?

Yeah but who wants to CUT there fenders out!!???

I love my body lift.... no problems at all with it....
saving up for a suspension lift tho......they are spendy...


so really, hmmmm spend a weekend cutting my fenders out and really messing up the body and having to paint, and so forth, plus cutting the fenders, means no more stock fender flares, etc...

or spend time just putting in some 3" spacers, and not have to worry about cutting my precious body and fenders.

no brainer...

Nice looking 2wd. Lol u could park that next to a 4wd ranger and probably wouldn't tell the difference.
Looks muddy, but why is the hood open? Problems?
