You're about to slam your Ranger 6" and are asking for "tips"?

my tip is, do a lot more research. It is not a simple as it is for S-10's, Nissan's and Toyota's, unless you have the Torsion Bar front end, like Nissan's, then it is simply lower and get aligned, although I don't think you can get 6" like that.

just by swapping in an explorer rear end, you get disc brakes and about 4" of drop.
FYI
