Is this kit all I need for my Ranger?

I have a 2001 Ford Ranger Edge. 4x4 Manual, 3.0 V6. All stock. I found this lift kit on ebay for pretty cheap, and was wondering if it was all I need. Is it legitimate, and do I need to purchase anything else (extended shifter, or anything).

1995 2014 Ford Ranger 3" Front 2" Rear Full Leveling Lift Kit 4x4 Pro | eBay


Thanks for your help.

First, what front suspension do you have? If actually torsion, DO NOT BUY KEYS! ALso, DO NOT ADD ANOTHER BLOCK in the rear if you already have one. A cheap lift for you would be a body lift, you can get it for less than $250, but you do need to buy the shifter extension separately. Suspension wise, with torsion you are limited to either cranking the bars you already have or a super lift $$$. If coil spring, you might be able to get away with a spacer. In the rear, get an add a leaf kit, or a shackle.

OP has an Edge so he has T-bars.

That "kit" is a waste of money. I'm 99% sure you still have the stock block in the rear. Don't add another one! Also, the keys are a waste of money. They do nothing more than what you can do by cranking the bars in your driveway for free.

If you want a cheap lift, get a body lift. You're asking for trouble with the eBay special you've got linked.
