you wont be able to fit 40's but 38's for sure.... there are a whole lot of companies that offer 8" kits... best thing to do is figure out how much tops you want to spend for a kit then see which ones are in that price range.. i can get you a good deal on a lift but i just need to know what your price range is... and if you want to do full leaf springs in the rear or a block/ add a leaf

I also have an 8 inch. I have the Fabtech Radius arm kit. I also have 38x15.50's on it. I can get some pictures for you if you want. Like others have said and what I have heard, the cheaper you go the worse your ride gets, etc.

i have the 8" Rough Country lift, with the stock 3.5" blocks in the rear for a total of 11.5 in the rear. i have 38x14.50 toyo M/T's and my wheels have 4.5" of back spacing, i wish i went with the 5 or 5.5" back spacing and i wouldn't rub at all but right now i rub a lil bit at full clock. here are some pixs.
