You could do a body lift that would only be up to 3 inches and it wouldnt change the hieght of your hitch at all, then maybe add a leveling kit. I think they make a 4 inch lift for your truck also

It Rides great.A little bumpy some times but It's a one ton Truck,you know. I did not put this lift on but I have put lifts on before,They arent hard at all.It helps to have someone to help you. Mabie if you want we can get together and put it on sometime. I'm sure Brian and lew would love to help.O yea George too. LOL
