89 Ranger Concept Ideas

As I continue piecing together my truck I'm looking to get into some offroading and I'd like to get your opinions on what I should do with my truck.

It's a Ford Ranger 4x4 Ext Cab XLT, stock 2.9L engine. (380,000KM on it, holy crap!)

I'm going to start looking into buying some boggers/large offroad wheels and a lift kit. What would you guys recommend?

I'm trying to get an image in my head before I go out buying the parts. I want the truck to look as badass as it sounds right now. :P

Just finished painting most of the interior. Need to buy a bit more paint but afterwords will have the black/red combo on the inside I was hoping for! :D

Anyhow. What would you recommend?

Looking for wheel-size/and lift size. I don't need anything huge, by any means. I'm just starting and I won't need anything massive, and I still drive it on the road so it has to be somewhat practical.

I like it, mine's a bit longer. I've got an extended bed and extended cab on mine. But I'm looking at a lift kit. Not sure what size to go with. :\

Any recommendations? Can anyone tell me what kind of pricing I should be looking at?

I'm not familiar with what's best for that generation truck as far as lifts. I just think that's the look to go for.

What's the thing called that goes over and beyond the windshield (looks like cap off a hat) displayed in this picture?

Is it an aftermarket part, if so I'd like to buy one. :P Any ideas on how much they cost?
