well yes and no the 4 inch lift u have on there now gave u more ground clearance now if u put a 3 inch body it lifts the body up not the suspension so u will still only have the same ground clearance but if u add bigger tires onto it. it will lift up the truck and give u more ground clearance so since u have a small tire size on there now if u put 31" tires on there it will lift it quite abit and u could possibly put 33 inch tires on there when u put the 3 inch body on cuz it raises the fender away from the tires but u might have alittle rub on the a-arm or the sway bar but i do think u could pull off 31's or 33's but back to ur hieght question u it all depends on how many inches from the ground ur truck is right now cuz a body lift gives u no lift from the ground just makes u sit higher and lets u put bigger tires on hope this helped man

I don't want to jack this thread, but it really helps me read this if you use punctuation. Say it out loud and put a comma or period when ever you take a pause [ breath ]. Helps you make sense ;)

bottom line when you here someone talk about how much lift they have there talking about suspension lift not including the tire's if you include the tire's then it would sound like you have a huge lift that you dont your total lift would be 7inch's on your truck.

Total of 7". Then if you include tire, it's 1/2 of difference. EG. 235/75 -15 = 29" Go to a 33". 33"-29"=4". 4 divided by 2 = 2" more road clearance, not lift.

I doubt you will be able to clear 33's up front on a 2wd. I have right around 6" of lift on my 4x4 and hardly clear 33's. With a 6" suspension and 3" body you would be good. I am not saying there is no way it will fir, but it will be tight for sure. You could always do a little fender trimming. The only rub you will have on the suspension will be the sway bar and the radius arms.

Yes I got 6 inches of lift spring buckets spindles and body lift
But your truck has a completely different suspension setup. IIRC the Gen IV+ 2wd Rangers sit like 2" higher than the old TIB Rangers in the first place.
