first you should send the lift you bought back.

to lift the front you can just crank the torsion bars up. you dont need the new keys.

to lift the rear i would order a set of beltech 6400 shackles they will raise the rear about 2 inches.

if you do a bl on top of that you can fit a 33 inch tires.

the rest of the questions are up to you its your truck make it your own

Cameron, it depends on what year. You know which years are affected. you've been here long enough to see the threads.

Op, what year is your truck? Do a search in the suspension section and for my name. Others have done what I did or instead of AAL's used blocks.

Right, so 06-07 just crank. 08 is where he would have to swap keys.
We'll have wait and see when Rusty (op, not cameron's truck) responds.
