You're going to need a 6" lift with no/very minor trimming or a 4" lift with fender trimming. You're also going to want to go with a 35x15.5 (375/45r22) so your tire doesn't blow off the bead when you put a pallet of bricks in the bed.

Since you use the truck for work i'd build a kit with a mix of parts to retain load capacity while keeping superior ride. I'd do a 6" front BDS lift mixed with parts from PMF to beef up the front and obtain the rear lift. Parts from PMF include, track bar, dual steering stabilizer, sway bar links, rear traction block with stage 2 traction bars, adjustable ubolt plates and ubolts.

You're also going to want to put in new balljoints, tie rod ends, red head steering box, to start. Really the only way to gaurentee your truck won't go all over the road and your steering wheel will remain centered under all conditions.

Don't cheap out otherwise you'll most likely end up on the side of the road with a broken truck.

22x14's are a lot to ask for on these trucks and require a lot of money to avoid problems.

Also for wheels our trucks use a 125 hub bore. The newer trucks use the 130. When looking at wheels they will say 8x170 125 or 130 hub bore. Make sure to get a 125 otherwise there will be a gap when mounting to the axle.

6" lift for 35s? That is way overkill, you need a 2.5" lift to run 35s, not sure if the big rim size is playing into thay recommendation.

14 wide is hard to clear.

Going taller doesn't push them away from the leaf springs though?
