I need some advice! wich lift? wat can i squeeze in now?

well, heres my problem i have 2 dirtbikes to haul around, thats why i bought a pick up truck. i have some kind of lift in the back for towing i have air ride suspenion in the back and like 6 leafs. i bought the truck like this. I will be towing my big boat everynow and then, and tow the small one like every weekend. how many inches was put on the back compared to stock?
im thinking about just doin a front lift and maybe a small rear block lift or something, what could i squeeze in the now (tires) maybe ill get like a 2inch lift in the back and a 3 inch in the front? can i add blocks to the air bags? i like the air bags , so i want to keep them. I want the big 8inch lift but its not practical for me with dirtbikes and towing and stuff, any help??
thanks
