If you're looking for an easy, bolt in kit, old man emu (OME) is probably one of the easiest to do. I went that route and have been pretty happy with the performance. At the time of purchase, I knew i was getting beefier bumpers in the near future, so I went with the heavy duty kit. Overall, it gave right around 2 inches of lift and kept things fairly level. Front was a little higher until I installed a shrockworks steel bumper + winch.
The stock Bilsteins that came on my rig committed suicide on a washboard trail only about 15 miles in. I had less than 30k miles on the rig at that point. The OME nitrocharger shocks have survived that same trail numerous times now and at much higher speeds. It handles nicely on pavement as well as off pavement. It took about 4 hours to install the kit with basic tools.
The OME kit also has the distinction of claiming to install onto your rig without adversely affecting driveline angles. I found the claim to be true in my case and did not require shims to correct angles on the rear axle. I opted for the complete kit with pre assembled front components, the greaseable shackles and split bushings for the leaf packs. 4 years later and I'm still happy with the setup.
