I did a 3" body lift on my 2002 Ranger & 2" body lift on my 2000 F150, I like the price of them too, not sure about your year but I did both of mine on a weekend, not that hard to do just time consumming.

I made my own body lift for an older truck I had, and ended up doing it twice. I learned something and had to correct it. It started with the body moving/leaning way too much, with the extra leverage that comes with a body lift. So I spent the hundred (or so) bucks and bought all new poly-urethane body mounts. That stiffened the mounts and I drove the truck about twenty years before selling it.

Thanks for your thoughts guys I think I'm going to order mine tomorrow. I'll have to build my own rear bumper brackets because I just finished building my new plate steel one but I don't think that will be to hard.
