little lift to my ranger

Im somewhat new to the truck game. I have a 2001 2wd single cab. Im looking to add a little bit of a lift to it. I was thinking just a soa in the back. How much lift would that give me? What do I need to do it and how hard is it to do? What would i need for the front to even it out?

You could slap a body lift on it to give you an extra 3 inches.

hmm i dont know if i like how the frame shows once you body lift. It wouldnt be worth it to do the soa in the rear then do the front springs to match?

Frame really doesnt show all that much on a ranger. Just paint the frame black and it looks good.
