If you lift it 2" you should be pretty safe, you won't need a double cardan drive shaft.
BDS has nice 2" springs
AEV has nice 3" springs
As far as shocks I like the bilstien 5100's
You will need to add bumpstop with lift.
Another option is to leave the suspension alone and do a body lift, that won't increase your travel but will give your tires the room they need.
A 1.25" body lift would also help if you wanted to do a tummy tuck and lift the gas tank up.
I'm just not sure if a 1.25" body lift alone would be enough, but it would help.
