suspension lifts & nerf bars

I currently have an 03' f350 with 4" magnaflow exhaust from the turbo back, AEM air intake, and bullydog tripple dog programmer. I was wondering which suspension lift has the best results as far as leveling the truck out and not changing the ride drastically for a 6 to 8 inch lift? I was also looking at nerf bars and seemed to like the putco 4" boss bars. Anyone have any other suggestions.

When looking at a lift and ride, look at upgrading the cheap shocks for something better like Bistein's. They are not that much more but will make a big difference.

For your year of truck all the off the shelf one part number buys all gets have OK leaf springs. You will not start to find really nice leaf springs till you get into the Icon or Deaver springs. They offer a progressive leaf pack.
