2010 with stabilitrac 2-4" lift kits?

new to this site so sorry if screw this up. i have a 2010 ford ranger extended cab 4.0 automatic 2wd with stabilitrac, coil springs and four wheel disc brakes. i am interested in lifting it 2-4 inches and putting (up to) 31's on it. i am only interested in a suspension lift and NOT a body lift. does anyone make a kit for this truck, preferably a spindle kit, (HAS TO BE STABILITRAC COMPATIBLE) but i'm not married to that specific lift method. also, is it possible to put larger tires on the stock 15 inch rims without throwing the stabilitrac system off and compromising drive-ability? the truck is being used only for daily driver to and from work/ towing 4x4 toys/motorcycles and for mild off road trips. i live in central Arizona and don't experience a great deal of adverse weather... to be honest i want to do this for "the look". please help me with specific details of brand names, lift kits, computer mods etc necessary to complete these modifications. thanks in advance.

ok guys. i have found the solution. camburg.com/store/98-12-ranger/ford-ranger-performance-kit-2/ hopefully the link works. this is the only company i have found that says it will work with stabilitrac. just spoke with Scott today. i'll be saving up my pennies to get this and a superchips flashpaq, new rims and tires, then slap those puppies on. pics to come. gimme 6 months...or so.

thank you for your input. i have been told the exact opposite from every shop i've gone to but one. that one in particular sells the camburg kits. i have called fabtech and various other companies and all of them highly recommend against using their spindle kits on an 09-12 ranger because of the stabilitrac. one shop outright told me they would simply not install anything on it because they were unaware of any kit that would work without setting this year truck into limp mode. (i respect them for that actually) however when i called camburg they assured me it would work... but if you have experience with other spindle kits that are cheaper that work with stabilitrac please do let me know. camburg isn't exactly cheap.

sadly most shops have no idea what they are talking about. A spindle doesnt have any sensors or electronics on it. Camburg knows their sh*t and you get what you pay for but even doetch spindles or BTF fab would be good options too
