    I'm starting to lean towards selling my first gen so I can buy a /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif 95 Bronco /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif and build it into the prerunner I want. My question is, do you think it would be easier to sell with a lift kit and some 35's or at stock height? I'm thinking lifted would be easier to sell to some young kid that wants to look cool, but stock would pretty much appeal to everyone. What do you guys think?

    How stock is it ?? 100% stock and in good condition would be worth more to a collecter, but if it's already modded, go for the lift. I'm pretty torn when it comes to the first gens. I love the look of them lifted with 35's or larger, but being a collector's item, that dollor value is something too think about also.

    Yeah, it's already been modded it's not a numbers matcher or anything. I know if I lift it I won't be able to get that money back out of it but it should sell quite a bit easier.

    i'd say lift it. do a basic, well-done lift and sell it, i'd imagine that if it doesnt qualify for scary steering or use I-beams as lift blocks, you could sell it and get a decent price.

    oh, and be careful with that TTB front end. my buddy has a 94 F-150, 6" on 35s and he tore the engine crossmember or whatever the thing is called where the TTB mounts to. that truck was slow as hell and he drove it like a grandma most of the time, so it wasnt from operator error.... choose wisely in your suspension mods /forums/images/graemlins/waytogo.gif

    Yeah, I'm going to go with one of the long travel kits produced by one of the many fab shops in the socal area. I think it will be a lot more reliable than if I had tried to make my Blazer do what I want to do.
