Default What lift should i go with?

What kind of lift should i go with if i do alot of pulling a trailer? i was going to go with lift blocks,pucks and Heavy duty shocks, but some one brought up that it might not be a good idea to go that route that i should just get an add a leaf kit, F-150 springs and The heavy duty shocks. Just a a little more info on what i pull around, i haul a 7X8ft trailer around to pick up scrap metal and a lawn mower. so about once a week i haul about 1000LBs.o and as a side question i do a little offroading as well and goin to regear and add lsd would an 8.8 swap(they run about 600 bucks around here) be better than doin all that to a weak 7.5. thanks for all the info.
