Hey, if you think it's going to look good and that is why you are doing it, it's your truck, do whatever you want to it, more power to ya.

From a purely functional standpoint, you'll gain nothing, but simply be increasing wear and tear on front end and driveline components.

I'm a fan of going the opposite direction, least amount of lift possible to make the tires and suspension work well. I'm not going to take a sawzall to a brand new $50K truck, but in general, I'd rather trim sheet metal to fit tires than add lift. Lower CoG, better geometry on suspension and steering components, better handling, works better offroad everywhere except deep mud (I HATE mud...).

Your truck though. Do it up anyway that suits you! Mine will have bigger tires, with just a set of Bilsteins at 2.1...
