You have a 2.5" stock block so you would need about a 7" your right....

As far as actual HP numbers I have no idea. It don't snap your neck but.....It feels good.

I would put the lift on with the blocks that come with it first to make sure because on the truck I just sold I had a 4'' lift and needed 6'' blocks to make it sit level.

Mine were like 2.25-2.5 I forget bu over 2" I am pretty positive.

You will need a 6" t o sit level, and 7" for a rake

I don't have a 10" block but I'm running 6" lift leaf spring and a 4" block. I think of the top of my head its 1.5 or 1.75 higher measuring the top of the tire to the fender from the front to the back.
