SFA is the only way to go. If your going to do it do it right and add strength as well. An IFS lift will get you lift but you loose strength by putting larger tires on the stock axel shafts.

With an SFA

There are no "upgrades" for the stock axle configuration and I don't know of any aftermarket options unless you want to pay silly money for someone to one off them for you. The SFA is just far superior as far as strength goes but it does require a bit of work and research to complete.

Oh haha sorry. There was a guy in my town who used a jeep cj5 front axcle and a Ford ranger rear end to do the conversion but he said it was very expensive

It doesn't have to be crazy expensive at all. If you learn to fab a bit and take your time gathering parts and wait for the deals to come along you can do it for about the same cost as a good 6" IFS lift. Its all about patience!
