feel free to correct me becuase i have never delt with the new trucks so just a thought
4x2 XLT's are the only trucks now with coils up front everything else uses Torsion Bars which can be cranked to add lift up to about 2" but adds stress on parts. It's not enough stress to stop most people but stock height it best for longevity of the parts. It's the expensive lifts that change the mounting of the T-Bars to give it more lift( I think) But the added driveshaft and equipment all needs to be moved or adjusted( again I think, never really researched it cuz I'm a 2wd). There are many options for lifting the rear end. AAL, Chevy Shackles, Deavers, Chevy Leaf pack replacement, bigger blocks. But without anything to lift the front, he'll get an abnoxious rake.
