Check out superlift.com, all suspension lift and no re-gearing unless you put anything bigger than 35's depending on what gears you have now

I suppose it depends on year of truck. TTB rangers are easy to lift and dont require alot. I have a 6" in my 97. One thing I would recommend is removing the anti-sway bars, front and rear. They link up both sides and hinder flex. Some things you will need to buy (TTB) would be camber bushings. NAPA sells them and has them in stock. I have BDS lift in mine, I would recommend 4" drop brackets and 6" coils. With 6" the pivot brackets are lower than the bottom ball joints, does not provide good flex/clearance. Steering stab. wouldn't be a bad idea, I got one. All they really do is take care of any death wobble, I had none but since I had it, put it on
