Does anyone have any pics of a 4x4 ranger with 3 inch lifted t-bar keys and 2 inch blocks for the rear.

I still have the new torsion keys and blocks I originally purchased, so I figured I would put it on one of my other 4x4s. And I still got the superlift.

That's not how it works, that's now how any of this works.

Also, a few house keeping things:
1: you already have 2.5" blocks, so swapping them for the 3" blocks isn't gonna gain you much height. DO NOT STACK BLOCKS

2: You're best bet is to sell that worthless piece of shit "leveling kit" and crank your stock keys. Cranking your stock keys is cheaper and keeps you suspension within factory limits. After market keys allow you to push the front suspension geometry far beyond what Ford intended (yea yea, I know "you won't crank them that far". Everybody says that. Everybody cranks them too far.)

Depends, is all of this in conjunction with the superlift? Also, how much take does your truck have?

Cranking your stock keys is gonna get you 1.5-2" of "lift". This may be just enough to level the truck. In that case, you don't have to mess with the rear.

If the tbar lift puts you past level, or you want to keep the rake, you can do lift shackles to make up the difference. In that picture, I was running lift shackles, expo springs, and removed the factory lift block. This left me with quite a bit of rake though.

If all of this is in conjunction with a superlift, then all of the above kinda goes out the window. Lifting the truck 4" open up the door for actual lift springs, a combo of spring and shackle lift, or a combo of spring/shackle/block lift. It all depends on your budget and how much you're willing to half ass things.

Don't. Sell it. Crank you stock keys. You and your truck will thank me later.
