All I can say is be careful. I have a 16 that I put the Ranch Quick Lift on her and my front end went from 36 3/4 to 40 1/2, but I'm also running 34s on mine as well, so I got almost 4 full inches out of my leveling kit.

I just sneak under the 6'8" height tube in the garages up in Seattle and often the tube will touch or slightly drag across my roof. Its really scary sometimes, and 6"8" seems to be a really popular height limit around here at least. You may be able to get away with 35's if you go 2" lift though.

I am no expert but I dont see how this can be accurate... If a lift lowers the control arm wouldnt it have an affect on the camber? I dont see why the toe would be affected... but then I may not understand the suspension as well as others.

caster i believe is what he means.. Which yes it does affect (levelling kits) and actually affects ride quality... I'm a mechanic and they teach you this in tech school... Caster is the relationship between the top of the knuckle viewed from the side of the truck leaning either toward the front of the truck(negative) or rear of the truck(positive). No domestic or import vehicles, that i know of anyway, do not have a negative caster, unless you're a racer on a circuit. it makes handling a little better same as a little negative camber can improve cornering ability.. Positive caster promotes a more compliant ride at the cost of handling.. Nothing dramatic enough to cause a noticeable difference in handling on a levelled truck. So when you level your truck you're actually taking a little of the caster angle toward the positive side(maxxing out the factory UCA adjustability). A control arm kit (camburg, pro comp, bajakits/brenthel, readylift, etc... So on and so forth) removes this positive change as they come with a little more negative caster angle designed into the component over stock to compensate for the levelling kits(allows it to adjust the levelled truck back to stock caster angle thus keeping the "factory" ride quality)and allow more flexibility on the front end which can promote more wheel cycle/travel up to 10" with a bajakits or camburg setup. Especially when paired with fox or king oem adjustable shocks.
