That procomp is referred to as a drop-bracket lift.

As mentioned above, don't stack lifts!

Plenty of capable offroad trucks here with only 3". Several guys are running 35's on 3" of lift.

You know your ground clearance actually decreases with 6" of lift, because of the nature of the drop-bracket lift.
