question 4 you guys will 2005 3500 rear seat fit in ?
technically speaking, you could make it fit.
but it won't be a bolt-in.

you got a nice hauler there, keep her that way and save your money. if you want to build and lift something, by a W-something.

welcome to the site.

one more thing,

you're supposed to mow first, then park, then let the weeds grow around it.  ;D

Looks cool, I like the D-200s though, so...

It looks really low, I would be inclined to think the springs are sagging.

For a 2wd you might just need to get springs to lift it, it might not be as easy. I wouldn't lift it any more than to get modest-sized good tires on it.

I've only seen wood on the bed when it's bent.

there's alot more to lifting the front of a 2wd than springs. you have some geometry issues to address (or maintain). i bet there has never been 2wd lift coil springs for the front offered by anybody since that truck pre-dates the pre-runner craze.
you'd be better off relocating or "dropping" the control arm mounts and using the stock springs. then you'd probably need a dropped pitman arm. that would require a considerable amount of cutting and welding and it would have to be precise.
