body lift install

this month will be a pretty big month for my ranger
im getting at least:
33x12.50-15 tires
4" suspension lift

possibly"
35x12.50-15
extra 3" body lift

all the work is being done by myself. suspension lifts are easy but what tools are required to install it and what exactly does it require?

thanks in advance

btw my ranger:
1993 4.0 v6 automatic 4x4. it has the 235/75-15's on the factory 15x8's right now.

well the rear is easy. the front you have to drop the whole front suspension and install the drop brackets. and the bl is pretty straight forward too.

well i'll be replacing basically all the suspension with the suspension lift so you're saying it wouldn't be too hard? i'm a pretty smart person mechanically but i've never tried lift kits. i put lowering springs and new shocks/struts in my mustang though.

i was in your shoes 3-4 years ago! hadnt really touched much on my truck, got the 4 inch rough country lift and a set of directions!! just follow each step and youll be fine! all i gotta say is, prepare to do a lot of grinding and hammering in awkard spots removing a ton of rivets!!
