Body lift help? Too many loose ends...

I've been searching around for awhile, and I'm realizing my generation truck (second) is either rare on this site, or the members just don't pipe up very much, but I can't find what I'm looking for.

I got offered a pretty good deal on some 17" Cragers with I THINK 32" tires, and I'd like to jump on that, but I know for a fact I need more clearance. (the truck is stock height right now) I've been planning a 3" body lift for a long time, and I'm finally going to get around to it. I assume a 32" will fit, but just to be certain, does anyone know for sure?
What's the max size tire I could stuff under it?

This is the lift I'm thinking of getting
http://4wheelonline.com/Ford_Ranger.177825.0
Part number PER-833. This is just what what I've found. Does anyone know of a cheaper place or a better lift for the price? Should I avoid this one? Any thoughts whatsoever will help..

Also, if you haven't picked up on it yet, this is my first time doing this, so if anyone has tips or tricks to make it an easier process, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks guys!

Thats about the same price as the one summit offers.
But, just make sure every things included and you'll be ok. I've seen a few BL'd Gen 2s. so it should be pretty sweet.

You can stuff up to 35"s. But remember just because they fit doesn't mean they should be used.
