I personally would leave it at 8inches, but if you want more lift. I think you could just use larger blocks and longer shocks.

i vote to leave it as is. you'll probably end up spending too much money for just that a little extra lift. its an awesome truck..

On the rear you could run a Traction Block setup. You can get whatever size you want. I just got mine in the other day. They are 10" blocks. Here is some info on them:

You can add an 2 inch spring spacer for the front and an add a leaf for the rear so you wont add more blocks.. But you are eventually going to need some kind of traction or ladder bars for the rearend to keep it in place... Pretty much what txfireman said above but a little cheaper...

My traction blocks are for sale, never been installed. They sell for $850 plus $150 for the optional 3/4" Zinc Plated UBolts.

$750 and they are yours
