I wouldn't call wheel spacers "good stuff" but that's just me. Anyways, you should probably go with a body lift, its the cheapest/easiest route to get a lift on a 4x4 other than cranking bars and adding a leaf

If you're on a budget a body lift is an easy choice. Otherwise Superlift is your only option

PA lift kit is a popular option also and won't cost too much. I suggest that you get Superlift and you'll be glad you did.

I'd suggest against a super lift, you don't really gain anything vs a body lift. Unless you also do coilovers.

2 inch torsion keys, 2 inch blocks or and add a leaf, and then either a 2 or 3 inch body lift on top looks good with 33s. Or just the 2 inch suspension lift with 31s.

Why get keys when he could crank what he's got and not cost a dime other than an alignment.

Aftermarket lift keys are stronger and dont get all pitted cranked up. A kit from supreme suspensions which comes with keys, blocks, pinion angle shims, and a torsion key tool is only about 185 bucks.

1.- cranking your stock keys would be free
2.-NEVER stack lift blocks since most of ours come with blocks from the factory
3.-an add a leaf is maybe $50
4.-a 3" body lift would be much simpler to install and still be less than your 2" "suspension lift"

Stacking blocks is bad indeed. Usually rangers only have tiny blocks. The kit i was talking about has a few different options for blocks from 1-3 inches. A body lift by itself can clear bigger tires fine, but for gaining good ground clearance, the suspension lift is the way to go. Add a leafs dont cost much like you said. They're good for loads.

-Aftermarket keys are ****
-Aftermarket keys ARE NOT stronger
-Blocks are stupid, get rid of them.
-Why the **** do you need "pinion angle shims" for a 2" lift?
-Your source is selling you ebay junk
-Add-a-leafs don't help with a load, helping springs or rear LEAF PACKS do
