Default 2000 ranger 4x4 lifted suspension and 39' tires questions. please help

I am wondering about a suspension lift on my 2000 4x4 XLT. I don't want to pay 1800 for a 3-4 inch lift from superlift lol I have 3 inch torsion keys already and I have 33 inch tires on 15s. I want 39 inch super swampers. I dont want to switch to coil overs. Would AAL in the back (since front is just a hair taller now) and a 3 inch body lift work for the 39-39.5 tires? Or is there any other ideas on suspension lifts? I go offroading alot and would like to know the best answer. Thanks

A solid axle swap would lift it? What do you mean

Even if you got enough lift to fit those you can't run them on stock axles
And stock gearinf

Would it be to much load on the axles? And how much would you say a SAS would be

if you won't pay 1800 for a lift,
a sas not for you.
Plus the rear stock axle would have to go, plus the gearing...and at the end you are still trying to push that with a 3.0.

Stop, just stop

First of all, torsion keys are going to kill your truck. Second, people have issues running 35s without proper gearing. Lastly, it takes a lot of cash to play with the big boys. Do it right or don't do it at all.

My suggestion for you; ditch the torsion keys and crank your torsion bars. Get a body lift and a superlift. Gear your rangers to at least 4:56 and run some 35s.

If you want to run anything over 35s you will have to do a solid axle swap which is easily 3k+ with a ton of fab work.
