Default 2000 ford ranger sport leveling/front end lift?

i have a 2000 ford ranger sport and i just purchased some tires to go mudding in. i bought 4 BF Goodrich All-Terrain KO's 265/75R16. they said they would no question fit on my truck and rims however i wont be able to turn because it will wear off the steering joints or something...he said the easy fix is a lift kit or leveling kit for the front end. I have been looking at a bunch of different lift and leveling kits however i really don't know what to get and what will work best for my situation. i need a max of about 2 inches and to some how adjust the steering joints..........any input any body might have and or suggestions would be greatly appreciated

you bought perhaps the worst off road tire possible to go mudding with.

Ya man, I have those and LOVE them, but the BFG All-Terrain in the mud is about as useful as a poopie flavored lollipop. As far as a quick lift to get full turn, either crank the torsion bars or if you're coiled, get coil spacers.

00 has no t-bars you can run 31s stock but I would put a 1.5 leveling kit on the front to give a bit more clearance. -> mine with 31x10.50x15 and 1.5 kit.

sport means edge everybody. 2wd or 4wd they have tbars, crank those and youll be set. itll lift your front end.
