You can do lift spindles for 3" and coils for another 2-3". Search for it and you will ind a ton of results.

Coil springs, lift spindles, rear shackles, springs, blocks. Check out Fabtech & Bell Tech. I believe they both make lift spindles and springs.

i looked at fab tech and they have it listed for about 1000 dollars. and it looks like they make my wheel base in the front wider then the rear.. do they?

if i were to buy some springs and shocks that have the extra 3" on them would that lift it or be worse for my truck?

Don't buy fabtech spindles.

Search around the various ranger forums and you'll find out why.
