00' Ranger 4x4 lift and 255/85-16 tires.

Guys, I apologize for having to ask this! I'm not a 4x4 noobe, just a Ranger noobe! I just picked up a super clean, 00' Ranger 4x4, 4.0, extra cab with factory 16" wheels, yesterday. I don't want to do a full blown, serious suspension lift on it for hard core off-road. I'm building a 69' SIIA 100" Land Rover for that, built custom chassis, axles, Mercedes OM603 3.0L diesel ect.. Have a build page if anyone is interested, facebook.com/built100inch/ so it kills me to have to have to ask such basic questions!

I searched but what haven't found the combination of I'm looking at doing. Which is 3" body lift, front level (I don't that's called), longer travel shocks if needed and run 255/85-16 MT tires, 33" x 10". I see body lifts used a good bit on Rangers, but don't know if this is a reasonable way to get some height or not.
Is there a block lift that would be helpful to go along with the body lift? Not wanting to lift it anymore than needed other than what's needed so tires don't rub.

Cheers, Allen

Sorry Guys, I should have done more reading before posting my question. I did't think about the suspension forum! DUH!
Anyway, here's my understanding at this point... 3" body lift and crank the torsion bars in front, using 255/85-16 33x10" tires will work fine. So now on the the project! :-)

Cheers, Allen
