got a steal today

me and my brother were headed to our grandfather to go fishing and i saw a wrecked extended cab ranger 4.0 5speed sittin in a field so i stopped and looked at it it is fixable bent radiator support and hood driver door and cab just a little so i started to figure out where the owners had moved to so i go up a drive way to a house and i ask the man if he knew them or knew anything about the truck he said he knew nothing about them but said he had a ranger for sale so i went and looked at it. it is a 99 single cab 5speed 3.0 2wd. well i ended up buying the 3.0 for $250

yea the previous owner had a blow out and slide off the road into a barbed wire fence thats why there is no tailgate and you cant see it but there are some cratches where the cab and bed meet what would be the best and cheapest way to lift it to 4wd height or close like my other ranger (pics are under 4cylinder tech. will my 2.3 turn 31")
