looking for a lift kit

my ranger is a 3.0 4x4 and i looked underneath it yesterday and i saw that it had somekind of tiny lift like 2 inches or something that it had between the leaf and axel so that must have come stock but thats weak im looking for something in the range of 4-6 inches. i dont anything about brands of lifts or stuff like that so some help would be great and im hoping to spend very little like under $500 if possible thanks.

Thats the 2 inch stock lift block I think. Go to summitracing.com and get a 3" PA body lift, it will be around 200ish.

with that price range you are most likely lookin at a body lift. check with 4 wheel parts, or look at performance accessories lift kits...they come with pretty much everything you need

You can fit 32x11.5 and 33x10.5 stock. The 33s might rub a tiny bit but the 32s will fit perfect.

even getting tires they will run you close to a grand. when i got my truck i went right to discount tire to have look into getting BFG AT's but they said for the 265/75R16's i would be at like $1100 mounted balanced and warrentys. and like $850 with trade in on my ironman 265/75r16s. so i am sticking with the ironmans. save up some money and get a suspension lift.

check out discounttire.com (not the discount tires your thinking of, thats tires.com, this is something different). I just bought myself a set of "31's" Kumho A/T's for $100 a tire shipped, then walmart will mount and balance for $8.50 a tire.
