Default HELP, please...

I've been searching my ass off, on this site for about a week now and can't get any where!

I am soo confused!! lol

from what i've saw, I think I was to go with 32's and a 3 inch lift.

Obviously the cheaper the better, so I ask for your help in links to find these 2 items, and also I want to use my stock 16'' wheels.

I do not completly understand tire size terminology, so I don't know what i'm looking for, and I just want a simple lift for my 2WD truck!

and a picture of said set up would be nice too! lol

I do live in the city but wonder off in the dirt and mudd from time to time

this should be right. but in a 16 inch tire a 285 is a 32 and a 305 is a 33 if your going to do the 3 inch lift ebay and summit sell em pretty cheap. also a kit for a 98 ranger will work on a 02 it will save you some penneys their

thanks brandon, now is there a difference in between 4wd and 2wd lifts?

and i read all about the tbar cranks and think i have a pretty good outlook on that...lol

I said 32's because I saw on here that my truck stock could fit 32's but then i decided to go with a lift because i dont want the tires to be stuffed and look silly. lol

and also I have the 4.10 rear end which is better right?

and what is the lift i want? i spindle lift?

yes you can run 32s stock, I have the same suspension as you and have 32s. You will easily be able to run 33s with either the BL or the Spindle lift. Spindle lift is a lot easier to install and can do it on your own. The BL will take a friend if not more. But the BL is cheaper.

FYI, tires for 15" wheels are cheaper. Just for the long run.
