    6" suspension lift is the way to go, or you can go with a leveling kit if you don't want to go that high. Welcome to the club, and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!..............AMY

    Welcome to the forum! 6 inch lift won't be cheap, but maybe a leveling kit and some 33's would be a good fit for you.

    Thanks everyone. the 6inch was what i was originally thinking about doing, how much of an angle will the drive shaft be on with the six inch kit?... i also did some research on the leveling kits, that is always an option.

    you can probably get an SYE (Slip Yoke Eliminator) or a Transfer case drop to help with the drive shaft angle If need be. I'm not sure what those angles would be like on a full size truck.
