Lightbulb Planning For Huge Lift 2WD-Open to Advice

So Ive been researching forever to save up money and to come up with what i want to do to my rig which is stock with engine mods. I have yet to install my front spidey Spacers.

So far im thinking of getting these for the Lift

All Pro Fox Shox 2.5 Resi Coilovers/Rear Piggyback 2.0 Fox Resi (+3in front/+2in rear)
https://www.allprooffroad.com/fjfron...front/294(does anyone know how long the travel for these are?)
https://www.allprooffroad.com/034run...suspension/120
(will change out the brake lines for longer ones.
Complimenting those shocks with Total Chaos UCA ( found some for around 620$ )
https://www.sdtruckshop.com/detail.aspx?ID=117

And i will eventually go with Camburgs Spindels Which should be around 1g for another 4 inches of lift in the front. Also to balance the lift out abit i was wondering if using rear daystar 2in spacer will work.
Camburg Performance Spindle (6-lug, 2wd only)

so totaling 7in front lift and 4 in the rear excluding new tires

For the tires...im not so sure, but definatly Goodyear duratracs on stock urban runner 18in rims.
325/65/18 (34.6in)
295/65/18 (33.1in)
275/70/18 (33.2in)
Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac

if the 34.6 willl work with that amount of lift id go that route. but could somebody explain the difference in 295/65/18 and 275/70/18.

May not go with spindles if it causes alot of problems, but thats a future upgrade i want to be able to do.

Comments,Concerns,and Good Advice is welcome!

I have a set of Fox 2.5 remote resi coilovers for sale. They are about a year old, in great shape and only have 2-3 wheeling trips on them. Let me know if you're interested.

I would recommend the Total Chaos spindles over the Camburg spindles. They're a little bit more money, but they are built to handle the abuse Offroad. Spindles will give you more height and clearance to run larger rubber, but you will lose the swaybar. I ran spindles and C/O's for a while before going LT without any problems. With a 1.5 body lift, C/O's and spindles you can run 35's with some trimming and chopping of the body mounts.

go with some overland warehouse rear 3" springs, plus some cornfed rear 2" spacers.

The cornfed spacers are solid whereas the daystars are poly and will compress a little losing some height.

That will gain you about 4.5-5" lift plus the 1.5 body lift. Should sit about 6-6.5" lift which should be fine for 35's. thats what i am running now. its a little stiff in the rear if the truck is unloaded or not towing but it will give you the height and offroad you want a little stiffer for highspeed stuff to soak up the bumps. I would pair the rear springs with some 2.5" either solid or remotes. match the front whatever you do though.

Hope that helps.
