definitely looks like a daystar BL...can't say for sure though. but its only a 1" BL...it is the full style replacement that doesn't stack on the stock mount.

dana 30 front

i believe you have the 4 speed auto so i would go with 4.56 if your wanting to regear...4.88 if you plan on 35's

as far as tire size, 33's look to fit nicely but you could go to 35's with some additional bumpstop

the springs do indeed look like tera springs...they look similar to the tera springs on stu's website (although those are only 2" springs)
