Suspension Ideas

Right now I got a 6" 4 link Rize lift on the truck with softer springs. Before I didn't know what I wanted to do with the truck but now im going for a pulling truck/daily driver. So the lift is gonna go and im wondering on what to do with suspension wise.

1) put the stock suspension back on with farmboy traction bars, block it in the back a few inches so the back sits a little higher than the front.
2) buy a leveling kit throw some air bags on their and keep running trac. bars
3) Your suggestion

I personally like the idea of doing the leveling kit then running air bags so you can rake the back end up for pulls and run trac bars. What class do you want to pull in?
