Lift idea After I Graduate High School

I was thinking about a 6 inch lift, which includes: 3 inch spindles, 3 inch lift coils, new upper arms and for the rear Im either thinking AALs or shackles and or maybe a 1 or 2 inch block and new shocks all around.

I dont know what I should do for wheels and tires, I was thinking either 15x8 or 15x10 wheels (what would you choose and why) wrapped in 33x12.50x15 tires. I was doing some looking and I came upon some General Grabber ATs for a good price, are they any good? I not going to be doing anything extreme with my truck, I just want to be able to drive it daily and have fun on the weekends or every once and a while.

For the rearend I was thinking of going to some 4.56 gears because I found a gear calculator and that is what it came up with as the perfect gear for my truck with 33s, is this right? And of course I would get some kind of l/s or posi.

What do you think?
I cant wait!!

Thanks

sounds good, right now i have the 3" spindle with AAL and shackles, in my garage i have new arms and 2.5" lift coils, i will probably add a 1" block when i put those in. ill stick with my 32s on 15x8s since they are new. but 33s on some 10s i think would be good. I plan in upping to 4.56s as well, i have a L/S in my room waitin...sounds like a good plan though!

15x8. 15x10's on a 33 makes it look like a square, which looks stupid as hell IMO.

I dont really want to go lower because I load up my bed too much and I pull a lawn mower trailer with it and to keep the mudflaps ( I'm not taking them off, just so you know) from dragging or the hitch scraping on inclines, I have to keep my air shocks inflated to about 60 psi.

I hate how we cant just leave our trucks alone, we always have to be doing something to them!!

Another question about my lift idea
Who makes shocks that are made for a 6 inch lift, all I have ever seen are ones for a 3 or 4 inch lift?
