Man, that's a tough call. Just my opinion, and yours is the only one that counts, but I wouldn't want a lifted truck unless it was a 4X4. I like 2X4's lowered. Looks like the Rough Country kit comes with a three-inch block for the back. Once you remove the leveling kit you now have, and install the new front six-inch spring, you'll still only be sitting three inches higher than you are right now. Something else you might consider is that your 4.7 engine is gonna struggle a bit more to turn those 35's over. This effect will be even more noticable if your truck has a high geared rear end. Now could be a good time to trade for a newer truck before yours turns over 100K miles. You've really got lots of miles left in your truck, but the 100K thing will hurt its resale/trade-in value.
