lift for 2000 f250 Questions

i would like to purchase a 6 in lift for the truck in my sig. And i want to run 37 x 13.5 toyo mts or 36 x 15.5 mt bajas with either a 18 or 20in rim. I would want the tires to stick out from the fenders a fair bit. Will these combinations work fine? And which lift would work best? Should i go with a lift that includeds just rear leaf packs or should i opt for one that includes front leaf packs also? What offset and backspacing would i need to get.
Things that i would like to have in the lift
one block. no staked blocks.
and would it be worth while to upgrade to better shocks as in bilstein 5100S?

Sorry for so many questions but im looking for some solid direction and seeing what venders have to offer. might support some of the sight venders.

thanks for any help

I'm happy with the setup I run. It is a full Icon (some parts are Donahoe Racing era) 7" lift, made up of 3" hanger/shackle and 4" leafs in the front, and 5" leafs with a 1" block in the back. Tires are 37"x13.50 Toyo MT on 9.5x18 Rims w/ 4.5"BS. No rub anywhere after a drill and tap of my steering stops and install of a cap screw to stop rub on the leaf.

OUO bars control wrap and Firestone Bags help with load control.

A shot from the front. To show how far the tires are out.
