Cali lean/ bulldog stance with 8" RC lift?

I have a 04 ccsb with a 8" Rough Country it sits just barely shy of level right now. Wondering how to get another inch or two out of the front and give it that SoCal look with a little taller in the front than the rear? Here's a current picture, I just want a little more up front to also possibly clear 40's in the future with a Offroad number. Any input will be appreciated. Thanks!

I have a 2" height difference in the front. I love the raked up look.

Warning - Front drive shaft will have to be extended, the two pieces will over extend and come out over bumps. It's doesnt take much extend it, I got quoted like $80 with balance. Might need a longer pitman arm, I haven't yet though

Do you have any pics of your truck? I'm wanting about a 1"-2" in the front. What do you have blocks?

Im pretty sure blocks's in the front are illegal in most states - really dangerous to say the least.

I'll throw up some more pictures when I have her together. Right now it's on jack stands.

Thanks man.. They are 20x12 on Toyo 37x13.5

You can run 37's on a 6" but would need to cut back the valence, might rub just a little, if you would run a wider tire you might rub to much.
