Icon, stick with a block lift in the rear, consider traction bars, and 35's are as big as I want to go before looking into gears

i agree... 35's would be the max before having to change gears....

depending on how much you want to spend there are a lot of diff lift kit companies and diff versions of each kit... if you tell me what your price range just for the lift kit is i can let you know what kit falls in that range...

Icon is in that price range and sticking with blocks will keep the factory rear leafs and overload springs, if you have them, and would be better for towing. You could do lift leafs in the rear as well, the kit is available in both forms, and add airbags for towing.

Carrier bearing drop bracket is a must and I would consider traction bars. I'm as familiar with drop bracket lift for the front I personally like spring lift
