HOW TO LIFT A 2002 FORD explorer xlt 4x4 4.0L V6

I have been looking like crazy and cant find a kit for my explorer to have it lifted. I have seen different ways to do it and want to know what is the best way. I would love to have it 6ins total. Like 3in BL and 3in suspension. Is this possible. Thanks for all the help.

In the Stickied threads at the top of the page there is the install process for the pa883 3" body lift and the BTF strut spacer kit. the body lift is about $180 and brandon sells his spacers for $250, you can also buy longer coils or rancho quick lifts, but personaly the BL and BTF is the way to go.
