Sky manufacturing 3" or 5" rsk + D60 will open up your options. You could run a 6" lift and get the height you want but get a horrible ride. You could use 99-04 SD springs which has more options and some will give you a fantastic ride. Or you could get custom springs from a company like this Custom Suspension The best part is you wouldn't have to run a body lift and you'd no longer have that IFS. I'd go with SD springs myself

We can lift a OBS with a D60 to 10-12" and still retain a decent ride quality..combination of RS kit and SD springs..or swap axles to '05 up and 4 link it..we can help..

d 60, rsk, lift springs and blocks. That'll get you just about as tall as you want to go...
