Alternatives to T-Bar Crank?

I've got an '04 Edge 4x2. To make a long story short:

I've read and searched for hours on getting a front lift that will level it out.

Are there any other options for getting 2" of lift other than the t-bar crank or the torsion keys?

Thanks

That's what I thought. I'm thinking of throwing 32s on my stock wheels, 'cause I think they're one of the best looking stock wheels made for the Ranger. Only problem being, is I was told you can't use a spindle lift if you intend to use stock rims. Apparantely, you can't use a stock wheel with a spindle lift?

TommC, you have any pics? The truck looks good. Looks like a t-bar crank for you, right?

Thanks Guys.

Good point. Fabtech seems like the "spindle of choice", but can you recommend a better one?
