Default looking for an 8-10 inch susp lift.... help!

looking for a decent priced lift, im in the middle of saving for a d44 to do a swap and im going to lift the truck too. i want it really tall, while id like feedback i dont care if ppl think its stupid bc in a year or two it will be completely off the road and trailered around so i wanna lift it tall enough the first time around. i want the ability to upgrade to possibly as big as 39's or in that range once i take it off the road. but i want to see a pic of an 8 or 10 inch susp lift so i can get a feel for how tall it will be. thanks for your time.

you can fit 39s on alot less lift. i would do 7" of lift and cut the fenders. lower COG is better offroad unless your whole plan is to drive in mud. make sure you look at some 5.13s. for 39s i would look at a d60 as well.

i want around 39 for now but my target is 44 once i start trailering. i messed up my thinking in the first post lol so i need to leave myself some room to play with. ive already found the axle i want and its a d44. im not going to be going super balls to the wall hardcore so a d44 will work right? and of course i plan on changing gearing lol

----------

any idea on a brand or website that you support?

it will work but you will have to build it which brings cost around to a D60 front.

for gears and lockers i am a yukon gear guy for suspension stuff if you go coils ZJ 7" coils from IRO are a 245in/lb coil with 23.5" unsprung length which is perfect for a 6" lift possibly more depending on coil location.
