2004 Ford Ranger Body Lift Questions

I drive a 2004 manual 4.0 with 32's with the torsion keys to level it. I am looking into getting a 3" PA bodylift, but i had a few questions. I have a westin brushguard currently and dont want to get rid of it, will the bodylift effect the mounting positions? Also will the tow hooks be effected? Will I have any problems wiht it being a manual? Lastly will there be any bumper gap? I apologize for my lack of knowledge on the subject, i just didnt know if anyone would be able to answer my questions. Thanks

Brush guard-Will need to modify the brakets
tow hook's-You will have to do one of the following-remove them all together,notch the valance or modify them to fit or replace with a custom front hitch
Manual tranny-you will have to order a extension dosnt come in the kit
Bumpers-Kit comes with brakets to move them up to keep factory gap

Also hitch and exhaust will need to be modified to look right so they dont hang way down.

Alright, thanks for the help. I don't think I will go trough all that's trouble to clear only one inch bigger tires. I would rather do the Super Lift or a coil over conversion.
