I have an offroad edition as well, and from what I have read, the 5.5" lifts only net us about 2" since our front coil springs are approximately 3" longer. So the same thing could be accomplished with a leveling kit.

Only thing I worry about and haven't had much luck finding a concrete answer, is the control arms. I am pretty sure we have the same length control arms as the stock trucks, so if we add more lift like a leveling kit, the front axle is pulled back towards the fender more. I haven't really seen any aftermarket control arms available outside of a full lift kit.
