i've always heard the 6400 shackles will give you 1.5-2in of lift depending on which hole you go with,and you can also get a little lift with a add a leaf

yeah man thats about your only option you have that wont do damage to the truck lol. and even then your only lifting the rear alil bit and the front is still going to be the same, so what are you really gaining you know? I honestly dont want any bigger than 33's on the ranger. if I ever want anything bigger than that, itll be an older truck that I can just bash to hell and stuff, not on my 06 DD lol.

the army lets you bring your truck when stationed somewhere?

another option is AAL but you still don't adjust anything up front.
