14" travel

so because I am new to this and I am sure I will ask many dumb questions, I thought I would start with this one.

I am looking to get 14" of travel in the rear and 10-12 in the front, with out any major overhaul. I am under the impression that with a medium travel system like the one from Bilstein this is completely do-able. So my question is, is this true? and would anyone recommend something different?

I know most coilovers will put about 10 inches in the front, give or take by brand. From what I have heard the rear has like 8 inches of travel stock or something like that. I have some Dakars and OME shocks in the rear and Im guessing I have maybe somewhere around 10 inches to 12 inches of travel maybe.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The rear is already close to 14" travle. You wont get more than 8" from the front unless you get new UCA's that allow for more travel. THEN, you will be about 10" travel with extended CO's, and the UCA's. For more than that, you need a dedicated Long travel set up.
