My preference is for the Rancho's. I've had the stock wagoneer and they are good too but I would go with the 44044's.

Ranchos and Waggys are 2.5" wide. OEM Toy fronts are 2.36" wide. I'm putting the Waggys in my truck in a week or two. If you've got the cash, get the 44044s.

I'd tell you about my truck but you probably wouldn't believe me.

Go with 91 rear toyota leafs.
Its cheap and easy. I am running them in all 4 corners and it seems to work pretty good.
I dont have any pics uploaded anywhere right now so I cant show you, but I can email you some if you want.

In the front I moved the front spring mount forward 3" and down 1"
I then added an 1 1/2" cheavy add-a-leaf to the pack and bolted them on.
I figure I get about 4" of lift.

definately 44044s

i've got stock length all-pro's in mine - they do flex quite well for a stock spring, but the 44044s are better.

however, if you don't have any money..(because they're like 400 bucks - and lack of funds seems to be a recurring theme) do the 91 toy rears - i've seen whizzy's truck and it IS the **** .
