Suspension for heavy truck

So, the goal of my truck is to turn it into the ultimate adventure machine. Really good off road capabilities with plenty of cargo. My family consists of 2 adults and 2 kids. Plus we will be taking prolly close to 1000 pounds of equipment and spare fuel in the bed. I dont plan to do any crazy rock crawling but would like the ability to get almost anywhere I would want to go. I know the Kore system is highly recomended but was wondering what you all thought of other systems that might meet our needs. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Kore systems are pretty crazy mainly for going nuts and its pricy

Rize industries makes a nice 8" kit or if you really want to get crazy alteregocustoms.com is to big or go home

On my 2003 we have a 6" revtek kit and it is very nice rides like factory

Not looking for much of a lift.....maybe a 3" lift/level to get some 35s on her.
