You could also go with the Frankenlift from All J Products

Oh, and 245-75-16's work great great with a 2.5 inch lift!
We've done some pretty awesome off road excursions with the above combination and it's an excellent setup!

It gives you more than 1.5 inches , from stock height you will get 2.25 at least
If you buy the full kit it coems with all 4 shocks and springs

Teraflex bumpstops for the front
in the rear you'll need 4 hockey pucks ( 2 per side) drill a hole in the spring pad and bolt them in

HD coils will not mess with your CVs too high yes but these will not do that
So got 927 front 948 rear on the shocks use the 132Ls they are the right lenghth for the lift, standard shocks are too short and you'll top them out if flexed much.
I've done over 20 lifts plus my first setup with the 927/948 combo and no issues
