Default thinking about a lift

my ranger is bone stock, and im thinking of lifting the front about 2.5 inches, and the rear about 1 inch, maybe 1.5 inches. i have two questions; 1) does anyone know of kits for this? im talking about kits with this much lift, not just any old lift kits. and 2) would the brake lines or anything else have to be extended for those lift heights?

about 2.5 would be possible with a t-bar crank CLICK HERE -->http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exter...sion-bars.html

1.5 inches you would have to find factory EDGE blocks for the rear axle
