Cant find a certain suspension post need help from the vets.

I found a post somewhere in the forum which compared the several different types of lifts. Several folks named the I think Danhoe as the best. I am looking to lift my truck somewhere btw. 4-5" inches. I want the most for my money as we all do. I use the truck on the farm I do tow. I won't be jumping any dunes some light mud bogging and it is my daily. I would like to spend at most 1k. What setups do you vets recommend? I found one post by southmiss claiming he raised his truck 3.5" in the front with just an add a leaf and installed a 4 inch block in the rear. This sounds like a inexpensive lift and setup and may keep a somewhat stock ride. Any adivice is much appreciated. My truck is a 2002.5 F250 CC 4x4 with a 5th wheel hitch.

I believe Danahoe is no longer in buisness.
Yer rig with leafs front and rear is a simple/ cheap lift.
Either adda leaf or blocks. You can even have them re-arched.
I would prolly do the add-a-leaf project.

I think I am going to try the re-arched and add a leaf. What type of shop would do a re-arch? I think I may be able to find the blocks.

The Donahoe name is no longer being used, but last I heard all of the employees of the company were going to keep the product line going under a different name, looks like Icon Vehicle Dynamics is the new name.
