I would go with a PMF system. PM trevor (NotStock) and he'll hook you up. Just tell him what you want. Everything is hand made and reasonably priced. Here is his website, but not everything he has is on it. precisionmetalfab.net

I would also purchase air bags for the back.

I have 22.5s on my 05 and only a leveling kit was required. But I would like it to be a bit bigger so have been looking around for 4" and 6" lifts. From what I have found, the lifts will work with the exception if the rear u-bolts. And you will have to source them yourself. Also many of the kits eliminate the overload leaf above the main pack. I assume that will affect load capacity.

Trevors kit will not change the load capacity. If you are towing, I wouldnt go with aftermarket lift springs unless you plan on putting airbags.

Youre welcome. VERY popular company on here and Trevor has the best customer service that you could ask for. And his prices are VERY reasonable. If you want airbags, let him know, so he can make brackets for it. Just tell him your plans so that he knows what to do. Also, he'll have it powdercoated whatever color you want.
