Icon5 in need of a lift

Im wanting to get a lift on my 03 ford ranger edge 4x4 i have 33's with black rims and the t-bars cranked. A mesh grille and blackked out tail lights and corner lights. also blacked out my emblems. I have dual flowmaster exsuasts in the back Right now i have a little rubbing but can deal with it. Im really wanting this just for looks. the only suspension lifts ive heard of are over 1000 dollars and i dont have that kind of money. Im not really into the body lift either because of my exsaust. that would look crappy with the exsaust just hanging down low. Is there a solution for me?
any comments would be appreciated

Well, your options are limited. If you dont wanna spend over $1000, youre stuck with the body lift (unless you find used suspension lift kit)

you can go to autozone and find the items you need to lift your truck 2 to 3 inches for less than $200.

Sense you have the IFS front theres only a couple ways u can. Super Lift, RCD, or the BL. For a easy 2.5 inchs buy Chevy Drop shackles and crank your t-bars

u can move your exhaust up and put gap guards and it would look like you never had a body lift to the untrained eye...

4" Superlift suspension lift(drop brackets) : $1500 ish.
5" RCD suspension lift(coilover conversion) : $2300 ish.
3" PA bodylift : $220 ish.



I bought my superlift used for $450......so used ones are out there for cheaper. Probably not as cheap as i got mine though.

Rear, yes. Front, hell no. you don't know what your talking about.

You can lift a 98+ 4x4 2" using a 13mm socket....and nothing else.
