The OP was looking for shock length, he already lowered it.

Just in case someone needs this, here's a PDF for Monroe shocks;

would I need to swap out the front end with a ranger's first? Is there a more detailed build guide or...? ...Maybe someone could link a helpful youtube video? Beuller? Beuller?

Default lowering shocks...?

I used front shocks from a ‘95 Dakota 2wd on my Ranger when it was lowered. They are roughly an inch shorter than B2 front shocks. Only issue is you have to push the bar pin out of the bottom eye and it takes a little effort to push them onto the lower mount stud on the radius arm. But they work and ride really nice on a lowered truck.

My truck had belltech 2” springs with one coil cut off. Roughly 4” drop. Never bottomed out the shocks or had any issues
