Default Bought a new truck, should I lift it?

I got a 94 ford ranger 4x4, and I have access to a cheaper lift kit. The kit is a 4" suspension setup. I need shocks anyway, so I'm pondering on it. The truck already has basically new 31" tires too. Would it be worth it for driving in snow, etc? He wants $200 for the kit, but they go for more like $600 new.

your truck doesn't need a lift kit to do well in the snow.

your $200 would be better spent on maintenance;
brake pads, fluid changes, spark plugs and wires, air cleaner, windshield wiper blades.

I'm not sure what engine/tranny combo. I just found out they offered 2 different v6s 3.0, and 4.0. I think I'll just get some cheaper shocks, and then see how much it would cost to get the A/C fixed.

depends on what snow you get where you live here you will do much better with a lift in the winter it drifts 3-4ft tall sometimes and helps keep bumper up and not slowing you down

Yeah, I think it needs a new valve cover too. It leaks oil around there. I'll get some pics of the truck. It rides pretty tall right now the way it is.

$1500 for a 6 cylinder, 4x4 1994 ranger with new 31" tires, and 126,000 miles. I just paid for six months insurance. It came out to 190$.

Needs some work, but maybe for ~$1000 it will be real solid.

Valve cover leaking could just be the gasket.....

Not a bad truck at all for one grand, looks big enough now, Forget the lift, just fix up some things or throw in some boom lol

Extended cab trucks get loud...
