personally... a 4" lift would do more, but costs more too.

personally, i plan on adding in roadmasters and then leveling 2". the springs will add an additional 1 1/8" to the rake. so the level will bring up the truck to simulate a bit of a 2" lift. and should be slightly raked or level if i load it down a lot.

keep in mind this is all theory thus far.

we've been there twice (both times in sept. ) and the weather was super both times with no wind to speak of...yes, we had a great time, love the area for sure, always something interesting going by on the water, last year we saw killer whales not far off shore of the campsite. this year lots of sea lions, cruise ships, and a nuclear sub heading out to the pacific ocean (escorted by 2 coast guard vessels)

I think it's awesome you pull a big 5er with your F150 and two bikes and a golf cart with the Cummins.
