Crank your t-bars. Thats about it.

You could do pre-keys but people don't recommend them.

Pre-keys are fine, but he does not have a 2008+. It is aftermarket keys that aren't recommended.

Shackles are the best option for the rear.

Not sure what your money situation is but there are a few RCD lifts in the classified section for right around $1,000 also.

No. Cranking them will lift it but only an inch or two. If you do it be sure to get an alignment done.

If you're going to crank your bars all the way i suggest you get a camber kit for each side of the truck before getting an alignment.
