Nope, body lifts are for full framed vehicles. Yours is uni-body. Sorry suspension lift is your only option.

Would I need a new set of rims. Or will the factory work with the 30x9.5

Least expensive and easiest way it to put add a lift spring in rear and 2 inch block on front springs. At that point 30x9.5 tire does well
Add a leafs are tricky, mine was 2" I ended up with More like 4, and it also caused a different rear pinion angle, that I had to correct. If the leafs are good, do a extendedshackle in the rear, or shackle relocation brackets will also give you 2" in the rear on factory shackles. And the relocation brackets will provide a softer ride, with better shackle angle

Ordered new tires and wheels. New pics in a couple of days ! Still thinking on 2 inch lift. Was told don’t buy rough country.

Rough country does get a lot of hate. But I've heard they have gotten better lately

Zone off road is good.

Zone is good stuff, there is a site liftkits4less they sell complete kits for affordable prices, like a complete kit for $500 I'm pretty sure

I got zone stuff on my rig, if I had to do it over I would have just bought the whole kit, instead of peicing stuff together, it's addictive. 2" is hard to do without stopping that's what happened to me

I love my 4.5" lift, and my 31s have so much room, didn't have to trim. But the next set I'll have will be 33/10.50s. I dunno, mine is a DD but can kick it when needed. I guess it depends how well you want it perform for your purpose.

Mines only 2wd. Just trying to make it look sharp for my son.
