Be careful with those keys. Aftermarket Torsion keys are more of a scam than a lift, especially on a pre 2008 truck like yours. All you can really get out of the stock suspension, before causing a lot of excess wear and an unbearable ride, is 1.5-2" of adjustment. The lift keys will do this for you, but you can also do this using the stock torsion keys for free. Aftermarket keys also allow you to "over adjust" the suspension, and cause problems down the road. So, in short, they work best in moderation (i.e., don't actually try and get a full 3" out of them)
