After redoing my Flareside, I will never put a body lift on this model Ford again(bronco or f150) if it is to be used in Michigan during the winter.
I could show you pictures of the structural damage in just 5 years. Its cheap and fairly easy to do, but not worth it if you want to stay safe and/or keep the vehicle out of the scrap yard.

I have two full size broncos a 94 and a 95 I am going to be totally straight with you. body lifts are stupid all you gain is more room for tires your frame is in the same spot. I have a 4 inch BDS on my 94 and a six inch 0n my 96 the lift kits are very simple i have had my 94 for awhile and ran it stock for a couple years planning on doing a lift then when i did the lift noticed the stock center bracket was torn. Please listen to this it is worth every penny to do a suspension lift the quality of the brakets are amazing where the stock brackets are just stamped out peices of crap. Please give me a call i would love to go into more detail.
Thanks Ben

Honestly, I wouldn't waste any money on a TTB lift.. its just throwing good money after bad.. A SAS is really no harder than a ttb lift, and cheaper too..

Going rate on a 79' dana 44 is about $100, or less....

Move the factory radius arm brackets back to where the cab mounts are, weld on a track bar mount.. and bolt it in... it's really that easy..

Oh yeah, a set of used 4" 70's coils to clear the crossmember, and a 85-97 F-350 draglink... it all bolts right in..

These trucks drive/handle/wheel so much better with a solid axle its not even funny..
