03 Xl 2wd lift on budget

Want to do a inexpensive lift on my 2003 ranger xl 2.3l

I have been doing research on forums and not getting strait answers.

What exact parts would you guys suggest for my truck?

Again I want to lift it like 2 inches, nothing drastic, just to give me some more height.

Any info is appreciated!

6400 are chevy lowering shackles but on our trucks they lift it lol I have some on my truck. As for blocks I'm not a fan but i've never personally used them either so I can't say much.
