only options are the superlift suspension lift.. or a bodylift.. just depends how much you are willing to spend... you could also get a set of 'prekeys' and get larger blocks for the rear....

fabtech makes a very inexpensive kit.
Camburg makes a very respectable kit!
Dixon bros makes a more aggressive kit for a 2wd or 4wd
a cheap alternative is to get yourself a fabtech spinal ($400-$700), torsion keys ($125-225) for the front and some basic lifting blocks for the rear with a longer shock ($100-$300). look around... you can do this for less than a grand. My buddy has the 08' sport ranger and it looks good with about 5 1/2 inches of ground clearance!

You can't use a spindle lift on a 4x4. So that rules out everything you listed except the DBR.

Superlift for the front. Then get expo springs and shackles for the rear.

If you want 5" or higher, RCD or coilover conversion are your only options. BTW the RCD is out of production
