I got a '85 Ranger 4x4 and I want it to have an aggressive good looking stance. Any recommendations on what combination of suspension and body lift height I should go with, as well as tires? I was hoping on putting meaty tires on it as well. If possible can I get picture samples.
Thanks guys

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

You need a minimum is 12 feet clearance for most lifts, but 14 or more is preferable.
