    Welcome to the club. For leveling kits go with either a adjustable front shock/strut like the Bilsteins or for just a leveling kit go with ReadyLift. I'd stay away from RoughCountry, the've had to many quality and engineering issues in the past.

    6" Skyjacker lift w/Edlebrock dual front remote resoviour shocks, single rear remote. Rancho skid-plate.
    17" x 9" M/T Classic Lock Wheels, 35" BFG A/T or M/T tires
    4.10 PercisionGears w/factory locker, T/A Performance rear-end cover

    I think I'd be more apt to do the bilsteins but I have the Z71 package now that has the Rancho shocks. The couple of places I've looked so far say that the leveling shocks are not compatible? Is this really the case?? Is the Z71 that much different than than the stock suspension. I thought it was just skid plates and the ranchos....
