All this look ok?

So I've been thinking of things to get for my ranger lately and I just cameup with this quick list. As my sig says, it's a 1994 Manual 4L STX with 30" rubbers. I don't really want to put out for a big lift with insurance costs, gas, paying off a couple thousand left on the truck and only working part time at a grocery store. I thought these few little things (the blocks, spring spacers and bl) might give me the extra lift I want until later on when I might want to get a real lift. Also some other things I was thinking of for performance or convience. I know a chip is a big thing but I think I'd rather get this for right now unless anyone wants to convince me otherwise. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Ps, I want a new exhaust too if you wanna replace some things with that (and a stereo but that's not that big).

SUPERLIFT Shift Extension For Mazda Manual Transmissions


PA 3" Body lift



DAYSTAR Black ComfortRide 2 inch Lift Front Coil Spring Spacer Kit With 5/8 inch Coupler Nuts


3 in. blocks



NIFTY Grey Front Set Of Catch-All Xtreme Floor Protection Mats (2-Piece For Driver & Passenger Area)


Edited with unecessary stuff taken out.

Spark plug wires? Unless yours aren't working right, save your money. Other than that, sounds cool to me.

Don't get a K&N filter w/o an intake man. And anyways, up here our air is cold enough, a n intake doesn't really make a difference. It jus makes my truck sounds pretty cool (whistles when i punch it)

Yea I was gonna shoot for a PA one but it doesn't say anything about whether it comes with a manual shift extender. It says it has everything it needs so I assume it'll come with it. I'll get PA I guess.

The PA kit doesnt come with the shifter extention for manuals. Everthing but that.

And as for the difficultly level of manufacturing a bodylift. I have heard of otehr companies poor fitment quality, and product quality. All of which PA has none of.

Well then sucked for you. And if it was so simple, then you wouldnt need instructions?

there's one instruction on the PA kit that said "remove harness from engine block" and had some crappy poorly lit picture with an arrow pointing into darkness. We finally figured it out, but they could've spent a little more time on the instructions..
