Has anyone combined a long travel setup with a 6" lift ?kit

I am kind of directing my truck to be a "one truck fits all" setup. I live close to moab ut, and I also like to haul nuggets in the desert, I know going this route my truck wont be amazing in rocks or the best in desert.

I am thinking about combining a pro comp 6" kit with a Long travel kit, not sure which one to go with for this. I am not really interested in a solid axle setup and I want the longer travel but also want the extra clearance of a lift kit.

Has anyone done this or is it just a no good very bad awful idea?

No good, very awful idea...

Long travel can give you clearance and high speed performance. If you ick your spring rates properly, you can get a compromise of speed and crawling performance.

Yup. Actual LT trucks don't have any lift our they have very little lift.

It is possible... Well almost anything is possible... But it would be a waste of money and more than likely dangerous for anything other than mall crawling. Using LT for what it's meant for puts a lot of stress on the suspension and truck that more than like a drop bracket lift couldn't handle. But hey... It's your truck go for it

I think the rear driveline will limit you, as the U-joints then have to accommodate both a 6" lift and long travel.

6" lift isn't good for crawling. You get better clearance, but the center of gravity is much higher, so you are more likely to tip over. An LT kit that gives ~3" of lift will crawl very well.
