Default suspention lift for an '00 4x4?

im not wanting anything radical, i really would just like to go about 2", but i haven't really found a 2" suspention lift kit for an '00 ranger, seems like everything i've found has been for a pre '97 truck or for an '01 up. can anyone point me in the right direction? is cranking the torsion bars and drop shackles for the rear my only option?

Why not do a 3" body lift? much cheaper

only suspension lifts you have are the superlift. thats it. RCD is done. Dixon brothers is long travel. and there might still be the trailmaster kit but its complete crap.

cranking t bars is it for small lift. your better off with a body lift they work fine unless you have around $2k for a superlift and new driveshaft
