What makes this one better than the Tuff Country #24860K kit? The prices between the two kits are substantially different. I'm looking for a 4 inch suspension lift for my 1992 Ford Ranger, my pickup is used on lots of rocks and off roads, so I'm looking at these kits to fit larger and more aggressive tires.
The advantage to having the radius arms is better suspension articulation when off-roading. The other benefit is because the replacement arms taper inward, you have more tire clearance.

Review Product
1993 Ranger 4" kit with extended radius arms
It looks well built, impressed, doubt if the springs will ever rust. At 63 and doing it alone it wasn't too bad but I had all the tools I needed including a 3/4"Dr. breaker bar with a cheater pipe to get those 1&1/8" bolts out....rough. It looks great when all done. One thing I'm not crazy about is the alignment of the front shocks. You have to REALLY push the shaft inwards to get it into the mounting hole big time. The bottom of the shock is up against the new Radius arm limiting it. I hope the shocks don't wear out prematurely with the pressure on the shaft. Reason for 4 stars

Budget lift kit
End result was pleasing. Truck drives great on road, decent off road. Installed onto 84 Ranger. Not a perfect kit...at least mine wasn't. Had to bend the tabs out on the extended radius arms to slide over the traction beams(axles). The drop mounts aren't perfect, but manageable. Instructions were a little off as far as hole size for drilling passenger side drop mount(use the larger bolts supplied). I wouldn't beat the crap out of the lift kit, like extreme off roading though. No sway bars and truck drives good. Overall it came out good. Maybe 12 hours working, reworking. It was a little bit of work, not a smooth operation. Satisfied though.
