Default 99 Ram..wheelin' on a budget. Help?

Picked up a 99 Ram this weekend for $500. This is the first dodge Ive ever bought since I am a chevy guy, but I couldnt pass the deal up. Truck needs a few things..CV joint on the front drivers side axle and new sway bar end links. It came with 33" Trail Diggers which are shot. I just sold my old mud truck which was a 93 Silverado 2500. Im going to use that money to buy a nice set of 35" boggers.

Im looking to lift it around 3-4" but the cheapest way possible since I am in college and still building my DD. Can anyone toss out some reccomendations on a few cheap ways to lift it, how big of coil spacer can I run etc. Also Im looking forward to hearing any other opionion or ideas to make a fun, tough wheeler.

Here is a quick pic. Will update them when i get them off my phone tonight.

Back in the day hockey pucks and a drill would do the trick
