Donahoe Racing for the suspension stuff. Bigger than 8" lift also include Rize and Kelderman.

The ProComp line and Eagle Alloys have some with the 3500lb weight rating serious good looks with decent pricing.

BTW tell Tadd the YJZ0 files are working pretty good we just need to dial in the tranny.

I really like ford factory Harley Davidson 20s. I know that is boring but I really like them. I just wish Ford didn't have a metric bolt pattern.

DR has a 2.5" leveling kit with shocks.

I don't think you would have to change shocks but if you went off-road you could bottom out the shock fairly easy.

I went with the daystar spacers in my 06 and Rancho RS9000 shocks. It rides really well, but probably would go with a DR kit if I were to do it again. I also went with a Eagle Alloy wheel. It's kinda plain and simple compared to a lot of wheels out there now but it was the look I wanted.

For a leveling kit, I'd suggest the DR one.

For wheels, I have been happy with American Racing. I run the Chamber with the Teflon finish. I have 18x9.5 w/ 4.5" BS, but they offer with a 5.5" BS for the 05+ trucks.

Changed a few things. More than some, less than others
