First off thank you for any and all help!!! I know another lift thread. I assure you I have read, and searched, and read everything I can. I am ready to move forward but am kind of stuck with my research.
My goal is to do it professional and right the first time.
The truck is a 2012 DC LB. It's primary function will be ride comfort on road. Off road will be slow going mostly on existing hunting trails. I do like to play in the snow. Occasionally it will tow a boat or a Uhaul. I like the current rake of the truck. I do not want to be nose up if I put a little weight in the bed or tow something. There will be an additional 200lbs in skids and sliders spread across the bottom of the cab (being installed shortly). I plan to add ~200lbs to the front in bumper, winch, extra battery weight (in the future).
I want a comfortable ride for couple hours trips to camping sites. I plan to go to a 17in wheel. As for the tire I want it to fill up the wheel well not look like the truck is floating on top. I do not mind taking a few MPG off but would like to avoid cutting it in half maybe a 32 or 33max tire. I believe this puts my lift in the 2.5 - 3in area.
I do not want to add spacers and plastic parts and try and stretch something's capabilities. I want to get the correct coil over system up front and correct leaf system in the rear.
I have settled on 5100's from the research. I have been being pointed to the OME and ARB springs for the front. What spring do you recommend for the current weight and future weight?
Is a AAL good enough or better performance from a whole new Leaf pack? What leaf pack for appropriate lift and function?
What tire size would look best in the wheel well?
All help is greatly appreciated!! Thank you for your time!
