Going up that high you'll need to go with cross-over steering, may need longer brake lines, sway bar links...icon has box kits that have most things you need and also a cross over steering kit

why is your truck soo much lower in the front than the rear? and i agree with BMac.. if you add that to 8" lift your going to have to address a lot of things like crossover steering, longer brake lines, adjustable trac bar, sway bar end links. ect ect....
