Raise 2wd to 4x4 ride height?

Hello, I'm new to Toyota. Never owned or driven one before. I was recently given a 2010 acess cab. This truck is as basic as they come, with the black bumpers and steel wheels.

It's not a bad truck, especially with only 3,000 miles. But it looks really weak and kinda dumb. What is the cheapest and easiest way to bring this sad little truck up to the ride height of the 4x4's, which look so much better?

I honestly don't want to put a lot in to it, I just plan on driving it until the wheels fall off. I would like for it to look a little better, though. I'm planning on a bit of a raise, bigger wheels and tires and that's it.

Thanks for your help,
J

It's a 5-lug, bottom of the line work truck. Not planning on doing much off road, just like the ride height of the 4wd's.

Look at readylift and check out the 5 lug forum. Readylift sells a level kit specific for 5 lug vehicles
