Default Torsion Bar Lifts?

I am looking to get a cheap lift on my ranger from fatbob'sgurage its a torsion bar key and add a leaf lift. It adds a 3 inch lift I would like to know if it would be a ok buy i am trying to fit 33x12.50 swampers under the truck. Most of my off roading if for hunting and fishing but i would like have the peace of mind that if i am out for fun I can make it through that pit and over the hill?

If you want to fit swampers, you are going to have to go a different route. Either get a 3 inch body lift. Or a suspension lift.

32s or less. if you body lift it you can stuff 33s in it, my 33s with maxed bars and 3 inch body lift fit fine other than a bit of rubbing on the frame, but thats a back spacing issue.
