look for em'.. there under the truck.. there the bars that connect from your IFS to bout midway back on your cab... if you have coils (pretty obvious to tell) then you dont have t-bars

spindles + blocks.. or a body lift..bodylift for your truck is 120 something from summit racing

3" is pretty easy if you have t-bars, just get some fabtech spindles. thats 3" right there, then you can get another 2" with a tbar crank

3 inch lift spindles are easy to install and they provide more ground clearance than a coil spring/upper arm combo.

that was my point. if doen right you cant tell there is a BL on the truck. which is what you stated earlier.

also hate to break it to ya but no lift will gain much clearance bigger tires gain clearance.
