Ski Jacker is good, and will have a kit for your setup, depending on the vehicle options, You'll have to ensure that the driveline angles are in specification so that the U-joints/ shaft dosen't fail or fall out on the trails. You will have to probably re-located the transmission mount. Horse power TV is your best bet or a kit that offers all the parts if your not familiar with the process of modification to the suspension. Check you local laws, you may need to drop your rear bumper to avoid those tickets, also body and suspension lifts combined are cool and give you the added clearance that you might be needing but combined they are illegal, at least in the area where I'm at.

I believe that the 89 k3500 had solid front and rear full floating rear axles so the lift should be really easy. Get a lowered cross member and mount for the transmission, blocks and u-bolts and your set.
