Default Who makes a good 3" lift for the ford ranger?

So my buddy is thinking about buying a ford ranger and he asked me that I should help him lift it? I suggested that he go with a EMO lift. I would like to hear your suggestion as well.

on rangers, 97 and older use beams in front, and then once they switched to a arms, the 4x4 or edge model 2wd trucks use torsion bars, and there is also a 2wd frame that uses coil buckets.

so yes, we're serious.

not to mention any 98+ ranger i think the only options are a superlift which costs like 1500 bucks or finding a used rcd lift but thats like finding a needle in a haystack and the rcd is a 5.5 inch lift and i think the superlift is 4 inches

He wants to go with something like this http://www.camburg.com/ford/98-11-ra...ng-travel-kit/ down the road. He loves the look of the long travel ford rangers.
I have a 04 tacoma with the same kit.

*cough* http://blitzkriegoffroad.com/product..._fordranger_lt *cough*

not bashing the burg kit, but i think if he's going to long travel the truck he might as well get one that uses a bolt on hub instead of the weak and tiny stock snouts and bearings.
