    Soo as of now i have spacers in the front and shackles in the back that give my truck a 2.5'' lift... but I am looking to go higher. Up to another 2.5 inches higher. What should i use to add on to my current lift to make it higher? I was thinking 5100's in the front and AAl's in the back. Would this work?

    NO!!!!!!

    its a very bad bad idea to stack lifts like that.

    your best bet for 5 inches or 6 inches would be a procomp/fabtec/RCD dropbracket lift.


    OR if you are a prerunner you can get spindles

    Dropbrocket lift if you want to go that high.

    Never stack lifts.

    Thats unfortunate. I think i might either have to go to a 6'' but thats way to much. Any good 5'' lifts?

    Drop bracket lift (6" most of the time) is the only way to go to get that much lift with a 4x4..on a reasonable budget that is.

    damn that sucks. Like i said i have a 2.5'' lift and i look at my truck and say "what lift?" I think 6'' is way over kill for my purposes. O well maybe i'll just get bigger tires so it will be a bit higher. Im running the stock 265's right now. I should be able to fit 285's right?

    Why did RCD make that kit with the butt so high? Are they blocks or leaves? For drop bracket though, RCD did a great job.
