1999 Ranger Questions

Hello,
I have a 1999 Ford Ranger with 48,000 Miles on it. I am a Landscaper and i am looking to upgrade the suspension/springs on it because it bottomed out with a truck load of mulch. I was wondering whats a good brand to get, Looking for maybe a 2-3 inch suspension lift. Also, I was wondering what the tire spec's are on it. I want to get some aggressive tires for the truck, but its a everyday driver so i don't want something too aggressive. I don't mind and road noise or the vibration. Also, if you guys could list some tires that would best fit me. Also, if you could include prices for tires with estimated mounting cost. Thanks so Much.
-Dylan

you might try some load leveling air bags in between the frame and the leaf mount on the axle housing. you might be able to snag some off a 90s lincoln town car with the compressor (located under the air filter housing).

doing it this way would allow you to keep your ride quality while letting you ride level.
