do you actually off road, or just want the looks. body lifts are cheap. i hate them with a passion, but if you want to try to look cool they work.

if not, there are lift spindles for your truck, and you can do a belltech 6400 shackle in the rear, add a block, or an add a leaf, or SEARCH

Perfect, he has a 2wd EDGE and doetsch makes spindles for those for around $380.

A body lift won't do anything about you bottoming out, a suspension lift or larger tires are the only ways to get the frame higher off the ground.. Larger tires will also increase clearance under the rear axle which is always a plus.

body lift kinda helps cuz it lets you fit larger tires which is pretty much the main source of clearance

Larger tires are the main source of clearance for the axles, but it won't do much for you high centering on the frame. Not like a suspension lift plus the bigger tires will.

Example:

Body lift plus 6" larger tires, frame sits 3" higher off ground

3" suspension lift plus 6" larger tires, frame sits 6" higher off ground.
