my 2005 is already lifted i assume its stock with the off-road package or whatever but it could be aftermarket since i got it used......i wanted to give it a 1.5" maybe 2" lift just in front just a body lift because it already has the z71 suspension what kind of kit would somebody reccomend.... and will it affect suspension at all?

Just lifting the cab 2" would look real goofy. :) If your truck is stock then its not lifted. You can do a TB crank with shackles to get 1.5-2", but if you have a 4wd then you also probably want to drop the front diff some. My sig has write-ups for the diff drop and AAL install. There is also a sticky for the 2" tb crank and shackle install at the top of this section.

Snap us some pictures if you aren't sure and we'll be able to tell you.

You could accomplish that just by cranking the TB and not raising the rear at all. The most you can get out of the front is about 2-2.5" avg. This would leave you maybe a 1.5" shackle for the rear. Otherwise you have to find a CST kit which without the extra 1" shackle provides that look.
