Also what will be necesary for the front, brake lines, shocks, anything else? I am trying to clear 40x15.5r22 wheels and have the cut outs... Thanks for the help.
I think a block almost 7" high is not acceptable, that is also imo. You will need new shocks all around. You will need longer brake lines. Drop pittman arm and maybe an adjustable trac bar if your angles are out of wack. You might wanna look into a stabalizer shock setup if you plan on running 40s..
Also I see your leaf sprung in the front end. You will need some serious backspacing AND wheel spacers or else those wide tires are going to rub against your leaf springs..
