Not worth it.

I've pulled through A LOT of stuff in just 2WD, but then again, I'd be still stuck if I didn't have 4WD.

Its up to you. I probally would do it, but just make sure you get a Winch and you shouldn't have to much trouble, along with some nice tread tires.

if you want to do any type of offroading i would save the money you were going to spend on a lift and get a beater 4x4...for the cost of a decent sized lift 1000+ and the new tires you would have to buy 500+ (depending on the tire and if you went with new wheels or not) then you could buy an old ford or chevy solid axle 4x4 and go nuts

plus, when you lift a 2wd, it takes a much bigger lift to make it stand out since a 2wd truck sits a few inches lower than a 4x4 so if you lifted your truck 3-4 inches then it would most likely look like a stock 4x4

yea serious you can have more fun than **** in 2wd if there's good terrian around you. If you want to bog mud, climb rocks, then no.
But you can still have a ****load a fun zippin through flatter terrain at higher speeds, you can still get through moderate mud if you know how to drive.

2wd's are usually cheaper to lift anyway. What kind of truck do you havE?

a solid axle 4x4 is much cheaper to lift than a 2wd

corrupt: Thats why i included USUALLY

Froless: Yea thats not that cheap of a truck to lift but since its 2wd it wouldnt be too steep.
You can get like 3" lift spindles for the front, and you'd want lifted higher performance leaf springs for the rear.
i'd check out Fabtec Suspensions, they offer alot of good kits for fords, and they specialize in 2wd suspension.
F150 is good cuz you'd have some power.
I think some 2wd wheeling is actually the most fun if you have a big flat or slightly hilly land to rip off.

Also you can go to JCwhitney.com
They have a ton of lift kits on tap.
