The most you can safely(as far as excessive wear and tear on other parts) lift a 4x4 is 3". The description you gave is a little vague. You can get rid of your current setup though and go with a much better Coilover. Much better ride and perfomance but also alot more money.

Stacking suspension lift is a no no. You can keep the 2.5" and do a 1" BL or a 3" suspension lift or a drop bracket kit.

would just adding a coilover lift be higher than my leveling kit now?

if you took off your leveling kit and put on the coilovers it could be higher. they are usually adjustable. i did the same thing and its night and day. do it up
