Default Need help with my 84 ranger prerunner

Ok, so im currently building my first prerunner. It is a 84 2.8 v6 2wd Ranger xlt single cab short bed. I finally got the engine running perfect. Im adding headers and a dual exaust with a ram air intake this weekend. The suspension is stock with monroe shocks. Im about to buy pro comp 12" long travel shocks. But I need a long travel suspension kit. The only thing I can find is the skyjacker 4-6 inch lift. Now I know how a lift kit works and know the basics of my I beam suspension. So how will I be able to set up a 4 inch lift up front 2 in the back but still be able to use the 12" of long travel that my shocks give. Lastly im looking to buy my 4 inch flare fenders in a week or two and my tires the week after im riding some 25" tires now. so what would be the best size tire for my setup its only a v6 and I probly only have 160 hp I was thinking 30". Any and all advice is appreciated as im only 18 and im trying to acomplish the perfect prerunner for me.

33" Tires if you want to regear. Would require a 6" Flare

31" To give your truck a better look than 30". Mild 3" Flare.
30" are to small and look stock.

This would be the in between

160hp out of a 2.8 is optimistic!

Anyways, I myself have 33s and have to re-gear my 3.75 diff. Yet, I think my truck is stupid and girls call it sexy. So I'd go with the girls. I do rub a bit though with the no-name rims I have.

The 7.5 axle also has its limits, and 33 is right on it. If you don't wanna mess with things twice 30 is probably the better choice.
