Get a jack place it under the front of your truck. Lift the truck and you now have a lifted ranger on the cheep too!

Free would be to crank your bars, 2 inch max though. Then would be a body lift, 1 inch or 3 inch. Then would be the superlift or a used RCD lift.

Crank your bars, then 3 inch body lift on 33inch tires is the cheapest way to lift a ranger, and sits like a super lift but less flex.
