    you can crank them up a bit over 3 inches, but the ride will be stiff...

    if you are 4x4, you don't typically want to do more than 2.75 inches to spare your CVs...

    nope... cant stack them... it overextends the arms and can lead to lower ball joint damage...

    roger... well i already got a fabtech 6 db kit with the king coils and total chaos upper arms. i have alcan leaf packs in the back. the truck sits pretty leveled but i aint got no blocks in the rear. any other stackin options i could go for to get a true 9" lift without a body lift? p.s. if das your doublecab in the pic man, its a sick truck!

    even with the DB lift, your options are limited... only other way to get more lift is to convert the truck to a solid front axle, then do some crazy custom leaf packs, but you are looking at more money than the truck is worth...
