I just bought a 93 Jimmy SLT 4dr.
I'd like to get a 3 inch or so suspension lift for it, just so I can put on slightly bigger tires.
What is my best option for this?

Cheapest simple lift for a larger tire size is to put shackles in the rear and crank up the torsion bars in the front. That can get you an inch or maybe a little more. What is your budget?

You can do spring over axle conversion in rear to net about 4 or 5 inches of rear lift. Combine that with lift spindles in front.

I recently bought a 92 4 door jimmy it has a lift on it but I’m not sure of the brand. Has a tortion bar drop bracket and control arm drop brackets in the front. Anyone know what company’s made a lift with t bar drop? Looking for the brand so I can purchase new shocks so I can figure a tire size out. Brackets can be seen in the photo

Welcome to the forum....

Bad etiquette to hijack someone else's thread. You should start your own in the Liftin' it section.

If you want to keep tread on your front tires, I suggest not cranking the torsion bars. It will severely alter your alignment and camber. I accidentally screwed mine up, and shredded my tires. I wasn't happy. There is a 2" lift out there, I forget where I saw it. If I see it, I'll post here for you. Personally, I'm likely keeping my 94 stock height and putting 30s under her. I've considered swapping the front suspension to leafs if I go to lift it. Sure, it would ride rough, but it's the only thing I could think of unless I fabbed a custom front for it.
