6" body lift??? Where did you find that?

Switching axles doesn't get you more power. Regearing axles to a lower ratio (numberically higher) gets you better performance with those larger tires. What transmission...manual or auto? What axles do you have now? You may already have a D44 in the back. If so, look into regearing what you've got. Depending on your transmission, I'd recommend 4.56 or 4.88 for the manual tranny and 4.10 for the auto. Any lower with the auto and you really will have the RPMs cranked up on the highway.
