the least expensive soloution without sacrificing ride may be airshocks.

Basically you want your 1/2 ton truck to haul like a 3/4 ton but with only a 5' 8" box, I won't say it can't be done cause I've seen some stuff done to trucks, but to still have a safe rig when your done will take some bucks, change springs and rear end to full float style, front axle to a higher rating and the springs, you may have to reinforce the frame. Might just be easier to purchase a 3/4 ton with a 8' box.
