Default New To Rangers

I have $3000 to spend on a ranger. I love wheeling but I really want to build a prerunner that I can still take wheeling. I am not rich and am not looking to run any races, just want a strong vehicle that i can beatup.
I want to buy a 4x4 extra cab for convenience purposes, but my main goal is to jump the truck.
I want to know what you guys have for recommendations on what year to buy, weather 4x4 and extra cab are bad ideas, how much money i really need to put in to get this truck jump-able?
Is it going to need new rear axels, rear-end, ect?
Thanks to all that help, and also if anyone is trying to sell a ranger in Northern California let me know.

Welcome! I think if you're planning on jumping the truck, the first thing you should do is get some life insurance! I couldn't even begin to tell you what to get for jumping, sorry!

if you want a prerunner look then get a long travel that puts your tires too far out the sides lift the front higher then the back and put some lights on it lol ive seen a few around here like that oh dont forget the flared fenders well i guess thats more of a baja racer look
