Just keep one thing in mind. Increasing the vehicle height (especially and definitely on a truck) will increase the vehicle's center of gravity, making it more prone to rollover than it already is. Part of my job on a PD before retirement was teaching defensive driving tactics. The class was mandatory for officers driving marked pickups and Expeditions. We had a stock Ford F-150 outfitted with outriggers and I could turn the thing onto the outrigger (meaning it would turn over) at 40 miles per hour. Just something to keep in mind, expecially if others will be driving the truck.
