Has anyone ever thought of this...???

I want a crazy amount of lift out of my truck, but unfortunately its a Ranger and its 2wd with a coil spring front end (2005 XLT). I was thinking that I could use the drop down brackets that you guys can use on your 4x4 lifts like from RCD or Superlift (I like the RCD one better) and get custom made longer coil springs and make some custom upper arms to get another 3 inches of suspension lift out of it. I was thinking I can use either Edge lift spindles and only drop the upper balljoint about 2 inches or just drop the ball joints on the upper arms by 3 inches. Now using coils that are 3 inches longer and stiff enough to raise it another 3 inches than stock with a 3 inch lift spindle and a 3 inch body lift would give me 12 inches of total lift and enough clearance for 37 inch tall tires (maybe even 40s with glass!!) so going from 27 inch tall tires to 37 inch tall ones thats another 5 inches of lift. Does 17 inches tallter than stock sound crazy? I was thinking about making drop down brackets myself but I am sure the 4x4 ones should work, if not then I will have to make everything. Have any of you guys pondered this or have any suggestions?
PS, I love my Ranger so dont tell me to buy a full size or do a solid axle swap
Thanks guys
