09 4x4 Lift Question

So I have heard of a few different ways to lift my 4x4 Ranger XLT, but Im still not sure on the best options. I DO NOT want a body lift, but a nice 4" Suspension lift would be nice. I have seen the Superlifts, and it lifts the truck, so I could get bigger tires, but at the same time it doesnt improve the ground clearance. Im looking for something with improved ground clearance, decent travel, and with the room to have 33"-35" tires. What is everyones opinions or advice?

RCD stopped making the lift kit and it does the same thing as the superlift.

The only way you can improve your travel is the Dixon Brothers kit which adds travel

Otherwise its the Superlift kit. The superlift kit is a good kit, and it is pretty nice.

RCD's 4x4 ranger lift is no longer being made you would have to find a used one

but you can get the superlift and do the coil over conversion to get rid of the t-bars

The Superlift kit doesnt look too bad, but it doesnt look like it improves the ground clearance a whole lot. I know I can get bigger tires with this kit, but still not sure how it would look. Anybody on here with JUST the superlift, and NO body lift?

Where would I find the coil-over conversion? Also, does the superlift lift the back as well? If not, how would I do that?

My buddy down here in Corvallis has just a superlift and 33's and it looks awesome. He doesn't get n here much though.

The only way to increase ground clearance is with tires, and the only way to put on bigger tires, in your case, is a suspension lift. Or Fiberglass fenders.

Does he have any pictures? I saw one with I believe a 4" Superlift, 3" Bodylift, and 35 x 12.5 x 15. I looked alright, but the tires were a little too oversized for as narrow as the Ranger is...
