What are the options?

I bought some 33x12.50's for my truck and I have a 3 in body lift but I would like to know how else I could lift it another inch just to have some clearence besides having to go big and get a 4 in suspension lift. So anyone who knows how to lift it another way for a little money just so its another inch higher let me know thanks

Would it matter if my 95 is the STX model or would that even make any difference on it having a torsion bar or not
