Default Body lift?

Hey guys.. i wanna know what you guys think about putting a bodylift on my 00 ranger 2wd? I kinda want to get it up a little higher but im not real sure if im comfortable doing the lift myself. If i found someone to help me with it thats already done it before i might be a little more into doing it. I also hate how the receiver hitch doesnt hug the back bumper after you lift it. I know the answer to all this would be a suspension lift but i cant afford one right now. Any ideas guys?

I would put a leveling kit on the front and either shackles or blocks on the rear if u just want to get a little more height its alot cheaper and easier to install compared to a suspension lift kit

If you do this then there really isnt a point putting a leveling kit on cuz its not level now.........

crank the t-bars then body lift it, you will have enough room for 33s, bryce is a 4x4 but i think its the same, cause you got the xlt and he is on just a BL and on 33s. thats what im gonna do. and the tires and rims im getting with my tax returns.
