Which lift?

I was curious to which lift is most recomended! I know u guys probably get this question alot sorry. I have an 02 xlt 4x4 which has a t bar crank wit 33's under it. I ve been wanting a lift for some time and i got high centered the other night which pissed me off so i figured it was time Anyway I dont do ne serious wheeling but go to the sanddunes quite about and work at an ag dealership so im out at farms and what not. Does a lift make a difference when hauling stuff other then a drop hitch? I mean does it matter how much u can haul compared to stock suspension?

If you get a 3 inch body lift get 35s and regear. Beacuse if you're being heldup on your axles then you need bigger tires for more clearance. 4x4 lifts for our trucks are really expensive.

The Skyjacker lift is about $1450 and you will need a new front driveshaft eventually which is about $375
