Default WANT TO LIFT MY TRUCK!!!! Help

Have an fx2 2013. Just bought xd monster 22x9.5 with 33" tires. Everything else is stock on the truck. It has 12000 miles on it. I just bought it less than a year an a half ago. I want to lift it but I think the backspace may be to big for a rough country lift. I want to go 6-8 inches.
PLZ HELP I WANT TO GET THIS DONE FOR THE SUMMER!!!!! Or sooner! Best most cost efficient way.
Thanks a lot everyone.

Most kits require 4.5-5 bs. I'm not sure if any kits would work with ur wheel specs. The 22 inch diameter might help u some.

That is correct concerning the backspacing

Smaller rim won't look so dufus. More meat on the bone so to speak makes all the difference.
