just depends what you're wanting.

if you want a clean level look. drop the tbars back down and do a 3" fabtech spindle lift. but don't offroad it lol they'll break for sure. but for road use perfectly fine. if you want more do a 3" body lift. but then you're extending brakelines and all that mess

if you're wanting more of a pre-runner look and function go camburg. they have a 5/2(? i think) lift. its for more serious offroad use but costs a ton

That's the only suspension lift you can get for tbars on a 2wd. Unless you do a coilover swap but then you're really in deep.
