for one your going to need to tell us what you have. and number 2 i doubt youre going to find anything that big unless you do either a custom lift or suspension with body lift.

I liked a saying from someone on here the other day.



Your only as tall as your axles

haha

10" will be tough though i think 8 inch is all you'll be able to do.. new driveshaft for sure, moving all the wiring and lines

Best thing to do is dont listen to any of these guys...its your truck, do what you want. To get that kind of lift, you're gonna need some bigger axles to go with that rubber youre gonna be running. So, straight axle is in order...for ten inches of lift, I'd say a dana 60 balljoint or kingpin will suffice. for the rear, a dana 60 FF, Shaved Corp 14 bolt (chevy), or a sterling 10.25. Do that with a set of longer shackles, 8 inch spring packs with an add a leaf for the rear, and use leaves or 9 inch '79 F150 coils will net you 10 or more inches of lift with a D60 up front.

OR you could do coilovers and crazy linked susp..

OR....man I like spending your money....

want to keep you current axles? if so get some shackles (autozone chevy drop shackles) and some 2" spacers for the front. problem solved and will run you like $100.


want to do a real upgrade? get a dana 44/ford 9" off of an early bronco for stock width. lift coils for an early bronco will give you at least 2" more than on a bronco. keep your rear leafs and snag a shackle to help flex.
