Default Torsion bars?

Ive got the 2.9 4x4 and i wanna lift the front a little, ive read about the torsion bars, but dont know where to look on my truck to adjust them, do i even have them?? i can see them on larger trucks but not mine. so i was just wondering if i could get some help locating my torsion bars.

look underneath your truck for a solid black rod going to your control arms

Your truck doesn't have Torsion Bars. They weren't brought out until 1998. Your truck is of the TTB variety, and the only way to lift that is with taller coil springs or special drop brackets.
