Quarterback my Lift PLS!!

Hey. I drive a 2011 Ranger Sport 2wd 4.0L.
I need someone with experience to help me quarterback my lift so I do it right. I want to run a 3" body and approx 3" suspension lift on top of my torsion twist that i already did to level the truck. I plan on running 35x12.5R15. I dont care about warranty issues so dont worry about that but I want this done properly at a reasonable budget. Im thinking 3" doetsh spindles in the front and blocks or AAL in the back. Sound ok? Now also do I need to replace the shocks, driveshafts or anything like that for this 3" suspension lift? Will the stock rear end run 35s? And last but not least part numbers,suppliers or website would be appreciated so I know the best place to purchase these parts. Im from Canada.

Thanks,
2011 Blackout

blue_oval: I want the clearance of a 6" lift.

SteelDirigible: Not to sure. Is It stamped into the diff?

On a tag on the diff. Has a bunch of numbers look for like a 3 73 or a 4 10 or even a 3L73 or 4L10 or I think some are 3.23 or 3.53

It will fit with the right backspacing on the rims. 6" should be good to go.

Driveshaft will be fine, but you will need new shocks.

I would google search it and just look to see who is running deals on stuff.

And I would regear also. That is where steel is going with that. Probably 4.56's but 4.10's would be fine too.
