5100s/Eibach coils for 3-3.5'' of lift. you can't really go higher then that or you'll blow CV axles daily.

5100s are on back order, and Eibach never last long either.

Start using the search function man. 100s of threads on this. You have a lot of reading to do to learn about your truck. We aren't going to spoon feed everything.

other then that welcome to the Taco clan

welcome to the tw and good choice on the rig. yes, many threads you can read on here and others. most popular and decent price to spend on is eibach with 5100, aal, or a new leaf pack if your rear leafs are shot. otherwise, read on. good luck with the build.

Honestly anythin more than 3 inches is pushing it. I've got a toy tech ultimate lift with all pro off road expedition rear springs witch causes like 4 inches of lift. To make it somewhat level I had to crank up my coil overs. I've had problems
With my front end ever since than. Blowing cv boots to my front diff leakin cause the half haft angles are pushing on the seals causing them to leak. So do
Some research!
