You could always put a leveling kit on the front along with a body lift that includes bumper brackets

You could look into turning up the torsion bars along with shackles or an add-a-leaf for a little bit of gain or you could look into a body lift which a easy to do and fairly priced on amazon.

But other than that IFS lifts are fairly expensive. Just be sure if you turn the t-bars , do not over crank them , I would stay less than 2 inches and be sure to get an alignment.

Zone is also a private label brand of BDS, so you know the quality is there.
