best lift to use on 2000

hi i have a 2000 ranger 4x4 3.0 v6. i was wandering what is the best and easiest way to lift it. i would like to put 35s on it. i heard you could put new keys and then blocks for the back then 3 inch body lift. but i dont know if i can put a 3 inch body in it unless i change alot of stuff. making things longer like hoses and lines. please let me know what you think is best. thanks for looking.

crank your torsion bars in the front and 2" blocks in the back then get a bodylift...idk if 35s will fit without rubbing but 33s will

Body lift will keep the suspension feeling as stock as possible. Search body lift and you will get all your answers.

body lift and crank your t-bars, cranking your t-bars will make the front end ride stiffer but you'll be able to fit fit 35's with a little trimming, and it'll be cheap about $250 for the body lift

These don't go well with each other on a ranger.
