I just bought a mega cab that has a 5" rough country lift on it with drop Control Arm brackets. It rides pretty good for a cheaper lift kit. I plan on swapping out the stock control arms and drop brackets for a true long arm kit in the future but for now it works just fine.
I guess you could run longer control arms up front with the drop control arms brackets but looking at my truck the axle is pretty well centered in the wheel well so you might be pushing it too far forward with extended control arms.
