You probably already know this, but One Up Offroad is the only way to do what your after. I think one of their kits goes up to 20". But it probably costs $20K + :doh:

OUO kits use coilovers, of course. Going higher than you already are with leaf springs would not be considered "doing it right".

They actually have a real nice 22" lift kit now...

I ordered EVERYTHING from Precision Metal Fab....I'm pretty sure they're a site sponsor: Disclaimer - Precision Metal Fab .

Trevor custom made my 7" shackle/hanger system and 8" blocks and everything else is normal stock items. he has excellent quality and customer service, and for being made to order was incredibly fast with shipping and everything. it's much cheaper than OUO unfortunately. he has some stuff like that, but yeah if I had 10000 dollars I'd probably go OUO too :( but for now Trevors stuff is AMAZING! and will be what I'm sticking with.

Either way you ought to give One Up or Marty (Truck Toyz) a call. Might be able to help you out with some larger traction blocks in the rear and who knows maybe the front too :D LOL

I think I`m going to see if valley spring service in phoenix still makes the lift hangers and shackles that have flames cutouts. flames. Diablo had them on his truck before he went to a OUO conversion.
