Default Best lift?? Center of gravity, and articulation

Looking for the best lift for my 05 1500 ifs 4.7. Comparing Zone, BDS, Fabtech, tuffcountry, rancho, etc. Im concerned about lifting because I do a lot of weird angles at elevation and I would effin hate to roll. Is this a stupid fear or is it better to say go with a 3" body vs. a 6" suspension. I need max articulation and clearance. Also I noticed the bds suspension is really priced high compared to the rest of the manufacturers...why? One more thing while Im rambling...i would love a long travel kit for this truck, why cant I find one?? Thanks-

I've got a bds and am happy with it.
I wouldn't get a body lift without a suspension lift. A 6" lift isnt going to make your truck roll easier but if you only want around a 3" lift I'd just get bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks.

I dont think the bilstein 5100 will work on our year trucks. he has a 05 and that was the last year of the bar up front
