I would look into a selectable locker like an ARB. That way you keep your on road characteristics the same but greatly improve your off road ability.

You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something, sometime in your life.

I'll post pictures as soon as I get the parts on, tires will be first, but this weekend I'm going to look at z71 axles and if I have any more questions I'll be sure to ask. Again, thanks everyone.

This is just my simple opinion.
rear locker G80 would work but if you can afford the extra id go for a selectable im always partial to the ARB because it has an air compressor and with a tank added it becomes real useful to run tools or air tires back up.
But electric lockers are great to just not as many advantages.
A 3" spindle lift and rearsprings or shackles to level the truck would give clearance for a suitable size tire.
And for those days when traction just cant be found a portable winch to make your own traction.
Added along with items like wood blocks jacks shovels and other assorted gear you should be able to attack most farm roads and a few game trails.
