Default Rough Country 4'' lift questions

Is this lift kit decent and how would it do on a 4wd 3.0l v6 manual ranger with 34'' * 15 tires it has stock gearing and how much more gas will the truck take on the roads? few questions can i run 33'' tires with stock gearing and would the gearing need to be change if i where running 34'' or can the truck pull it off, also any pics of people who have the lift kit would be helpful. below is a link of the kit i want to get also what upgrade options would be the best for the kit also if the gearing needs to be changed what gearing and where can i buy it and whats the cost of changing the gears?

I have heard rough country is good. Running 34's will definately suck up gas, I have 33's now and can watch the gas needle move when I drive LOL. Check what gear ratio you have, but my thing is, if it were me going above 33" tires I would re-gear the truck

what gear and is it hard / expensive to change? also are you running 33' with the 3.0 and how does the truck handle them?

I have a 4.0 in my truck, I'm still looking into the gearing thing myself, I was told about re-gearing for bigger tires. Patrick would know alot more about the gears than me
