need advice on a lift

Hey guys, I'm lookin to do a 2" lift on my truck and need some advice as to what to go with. I think I just want to do a body lift since it is less expensive. My truck is a 1997 F-150 standard cab, long bed. It has the base 4.2 liter V6.

It's not the ideal truck for offroading, but I want to go for the pre-runner aspect. Any advice is welcomed since I new at this stuff.

Does your truck have torsion bars on the front end? and me personality i wouldn't go with a body lift their a pain and junk, I have an 02 F150 crew cab and now I'm putting 3 inch lifting blocks under the back leaf springs, and changing out my torsion keys in the front, but if you have coil springs in the front theirs a couple different ways to lift your front end, anything from spacers to new coil springs.

Have a 3" or 4" lift because your car will not have any option on selecting tires on 2" lift they are also not very much costlier than 2" lift kit.This lift kits are more preferable for f150.
