If it was me I would go with an Icon lift kit... then add a few options below...

Then I would add One Up Offroads front ALA arms. They increase your turning radius, tighten up your steering, get rid of the factory wander, and no bumpsteer.


Then I would add the One Up Offroad traction bars/blocks. These won't sacrifice ride quality, get rid of any axle wrap, keep your tranny happy, and will not affect your wheel travel if you offroad.




I would call this guy and talk about your options....

A great option would be the Pure Performance 8" Chase system with a set of their Prodigy 2.0 or 2.625 shocks.
