thought about it but it still needs to be street legal, which would mean the tires can't stick out no more than 1" past the fenders and if I went any higher I would have to hang mud flaps on the back LOL

you dont have to go huge on the lift and you could run like 33x11.50's so you wont need much flare at all and the mud flaps shouldnt be an issue haha

I use this rig to hunt in deep holes, and also need it to run on the highway to get to the hunt zone, hunting season it runs 52kms on the highway to get to the 3km run where I hunt, The 3km is all off road with very large holes which is where the recent 5" total lift came from, Now don't forget I actually use it everyday to go to work which is city, minor hwy driving,THIS IS WHY I`M STUCK

My stock frame heeight was 11 3/4" ground to bottom of frame, it's now 22 7/8" ground to bottom of the frame. You could easily run a coil spring setup to give you minor lift and if you want more.. Just switch out the springs. I have my rear shackle mounts for the front leads gusseted of the frame about 1 1/2" so that added to my ride height, if you would mount the block to the frame you'd be looking at 20 1/2" roughly plus somme you don't want much flaring you'd be running 33's and I'm running 35's so you would roughly be at 18 1/2". Measure from ground to bottom of your frame tomorrow and just see how much added lift you would actually have over what you already got. You might already be sitting at 15" max I would think so would 3" more Actually be usefull and do you think you would benifit from doing it

I'm in the same boat as you! I've got a 2" BL, and recently the 2.5 RC + 31's. Next up, I'd say 33's and fender trimming would be your best bet. Maybe a steering stabalizer and a possible re-gear if not, at least a spedo recal
