Don't do a big 'ol shackle to lift it that's so freaking ghetto. Buy some springs they aint that expensive. you could run 12-14 inches of lift on that thing all spring and run 38's or 39.5's. It would be a sick trail ride. Why not go with a 460 for the motor?
Now you could build a 427cobrajet run glass packs with true dual 3.5 inch stacks, and set her up on some 38 ground hawgs. Oh boy I'm going back down memory lane again....Damn you
