go with a 4 inch suspension lift from tough country for 500 bucks or so it will be better than a body lift

the older 4x4s like up to 97 have a cheaper suspension lift and can also have a BL. you are also correct, spindles are only for 2wds

The price of a TTB suspension lift, which is what the O.P. would need varies greatly. You can find the drop brackets on craigslist for $200 all day long, but you'll usually have to furnish bolts/nuts and the springs/shocks yourself. However if you go new, you can easily spend over 1K for a really good lift kit. It's all about the coin you have, how high you wanna go, and how safe you feel with the cheaper kit.

I myself have looked into suspension lifts for my F100(Same style TTB suspension), and I refuse to pay $200 for a cheap lift on a truck that is my pride and joy. The cheapest new kit you can get, no matter the maker, features thin drop brackets, no support brackets, and blocks/longer U-bolts for the rear axle. However on the other end of the spectrum, the higher end kits provide thick good quality drop brackets, a giant support bracket for the crossmember to prevent stress on the crossmember, new rear springs, new shocks, new coils, etc. When it comes down to it, you get what you pay for.
