Trek 820 handlebar height ajustable?

Can I adjust the height of the bars on my Trek 820 mtb, or must I buy an extension or something?
Thanks.

It should have the threaded style stem. You can loosen the allen head bolt on top and maybe adjust it up a bit but there is probably not alot of adjustment to it. How much adjustment do you need?

i love the idea about leaving a threadless steer tube long and using a clamp instead of washers. brilliant.
