good lift for 93 f-150?

on my way home from work today i saw a 93 F-150 for sale for 500 bux and im sure i can talk them down. its 4 wheel drive i hope. stopping tomorrow on my way home from work to make sure..

but where can i buy a complete suspension lift for it.. i want full leafs.. non of this add a leaf crap and blocks. but i havent been able to find one.

also how big would i have to go to fit 35s on it? i dont care about hacking up the wheel wells since this will be a trail only rig.

If its a complete beater just throw a 3" body lift on it and maybe cut a little and it'll run 35s. Why dont you just want to go the add a leaf route with suspension? Nothing wrong with it.

I've seen folks run stock with 35s with fender trimming. You can run 33s stock with some rubbing. You may have to space the front bumper forward though. Keep your eye out for used kits as alot of guys swap them out for solid axle swaps. What do you plan on doing with the truck. Is it a Daily driver or is this going to be your wheelin rig. There's alot of info out there so read up. You'll find alot of info here
as well.

Take your time while looking. If I had to do it all over I'd probably take a smaller vehicle like the Ranger or Bronco 2 and put 1/2 ton equipment under it and 35s. It's a solid combo... and cheap.

i may end up getting it. i figure they want 600 for it i figure i can get them down to at least 500.. then pick up a junk yard tranny to switch it to an auto and then go from there.. i figure it will be better than me wheeling my 2000 chrokee sport and scraping and denting the hell out of it..

plus this will give me a toy and a daily driver
