Default Looking to build my new little ranger

Alright, so I'm pretty new to this site, although I've known about it for a while. I just got a 99' Ford Ranger, single cab 5 speed from my uncle as a gift. Was a work truck for a while but in good shape.(first picture is the truck I was given) My main question(s) are how to make my truck look like this: (second picture) besides the tires and rims, is this a spindle lift? I feel like it is but I wanted someone or people to give opinions because for now this is what I'd like it to look like as it will be my DD.

I know it's off of Instagram but only way I could get a pic of the style I'm looking for. Any help is very appreciated. Thanks guys in advance if there are responses.

I can't tell if those are spindles or not, it would depend on the tire size. But you can get similar to that with spindles and shackles/block/AAL and some 31s or 32s

Okay well if you could and don't mind what would you recommend, parts wise, brands etc as far as the spindles, block and aal go? Cause I think that's where I'm most confused at right now is the right parts and what all I need to complete it

Looks like fab tech has a few and a few others so looks like I'm looking at 3inch spindle lift with an aal and shackle to get my look and probably 31's or 32's?

You shouldn't need both a aal and shackles unless you want the front lower then the rear

Baller is right. You only need one, so AAL or shackles, but not both

I was just about to come back and fix that haha yeah slight mistake but then if I have one the truck is then level or the front is sitting a little higher than the back?, as you can tell I'm still in the learning process on this and i guess you can say I'm looking for more of the Cali runner style sits with the front a little higher than the back

Even with the rear lifted your truck will sit a little higher in the front
