How Should I Lift My Ranger?

Ok so Im getting a 95 Ext. Cab 4x4 Ranger and I'm already planning on putting on a 3" body lift but, what else should I do just to get a tiny bit more lift in it because I've seen a lot of Rangers with only a body lift and I don't like how 33" tires are tucked so closely in there. I'm not sure on what to get but I would only like around one more inch of clearance on those tires.

What do you guys recomend and keep in mind that I'm a senior in high school with a part time job and not a lot of cash flow. I've heard of like coil spacers are those any good and are they cheap. Sorry I'm sure you guys get a lot of dumb questions like these but I really have no clue about anything.

And also what is a good muffler to put on my truck. I want something that's loud and a little obnoxious but has a deep sound to it and it also should be cheap too.

Thanks

body lift and some coil spacers and a slightly larger block in the rear will probably get you the results you're looking for. and it will be very cheap to do. wish i had a ttb ranger. lol

Thanks for the quick response and are all of these able to be done at home with minimal knowledge but I think I should have all the equipment I need or should I just get a mechanic to do it all for me?

Shouldn't be to hard to do on your own. Just takes time, and would be a lot easier to have a helper. As for the exhaust....I remember when I was young, I wanted something loud and obnoxious also. So I got married, lol jk. I had a mustang with a 2.3l and an busted out glass pack.

Haha, ya I don't think there are going to be any marriges in my near future but alright thanks for the info guys, and I'm not sure about the glasspack, I think I'm going to straight pipe it and try that out but, i'll plan on buying a muffler pretty soon.
