2005 Ford Ranger 4wd Lift Question

I have a 2005 Ford Ranger 4wd and I was curious on lifts.
I want only a 4 inch lift, but they tend to be around 1400-1800$
I can't find any on Ebay or anything, but I'm open to buy if anyone is selling one.
Whether it's coilovers, shackles, spindles, I just need to know what I need to buy for an efficient but cheap lift.
Thanks

You don't have spindles on your truck. Nor is there a spindle lift. You can find used RCD 5.5" lift's in the classified section here but that lift has been discontinued so used is the only way you will find it. Superlift is the 4" lift at the price you stated and rarely is sold used. Body lift is around $200 and will give you 3" of lift.

Otherwise you can crank your tbars.

Do a 3" Body Lift and crank your t-bars. Block the rear. Save yourself the money of a super lift.

He has knuckles. Slight difference but if I said he had spindles he would start looking for spindle lift and those are 2wd.

Thanks for the advice, I'm strictly sticking to suspension, no offence but body creaks alot.
Is there any sites that have cheap 4 inch lifts? Or is superlift the only one recommended
