ok there 2500lb bags single port 3/8... is that gonna be enough for the front? I want to set the front lip on the ground at the lowest and be able to reasonably drive it... are these good enough?

Nice looking truck, it's nice that everything is already colour matched. Any ideas on what rims you want to run?

The REs have the longest and best rep of the two, but the SSs will give another inch of lift and are the same size.. I have the SSs and love em so far, they admitted to me the SSs did have some leak issues with the first line that came out.. Which did give em a pretty bad rep.. But they are suppose to be allot better now, and they guarantee em. Idunno if you've done much research on either, but they ride stiff enough that you dont "have" to run a sway bar nor shocks up front :) Slams for the front would be a best bet.. As for the rear they are (to some) too stiff.. but i ran shocks with em out back and they ride really good. Just kinda stiff if fully aired up. Sorry for the long post.. Just some opinion :) Cant wait to see some of your plans unfold! :rocking:
