Re: What kit? Opinions...
Nobody could have smacked you straight at the time Muddy. If you've owned your truck as long as I, you know that although SAS is nothing new, not hardly anyone (no one I knew) was doing this to the Bronco (or any other Ford Truck with TTB) at the time (though I know some who I'm sure had the plans brewing in their mind). It just wasn't happening, so there was no one to smack me straight on this.
In any case, that was then. I agree with both of your responses. If SAS is not an option, 35's/36's and 4" lift with an F250 will work great. might think of gear swap of course, depending on intended use. Word of caution on that course though. As we all know, once you have it, you love it, and comes a time you want more...and then maybe more...
Which leads us to why Muddy's direction makes a lot of sense in your case. You can only do so much to these trucks with the stock front. So, your direction of 35's/36's would have to be about it unless you went solid D60 axle right away. That's a bit simpler for you, having a 3/4 T.
Perhaps the out of the box lift is all that your looking for, in which case my vote is a 4" Rancho Lift. I think your truck already sits a bit taller than the Bronco.
By the way....See you at Tillamook State Forest, you're welcome to join 2BigBroncos Northwest Chapter.
