2006 ranger lift

I got a 2006 2wd 2.3L extra cab ranger i wanna lift it cause it looks dorky stock. i found the lift on fabtechmotorsports.com they have the 2.5" performance, 3" spindles and the 5.5" ultimate. what lift should i go with. as i said its only a 4 banger but still want it to have enough power to get me around on tires ill probably go somewhere between 31s and 33s depending on what lift i should get. What would you guys recommend?

I wouldnt go anywhere near 32"s on a 2.3L. Not on a new truck anyway.
