want to go bigger with a 6'' lift

Hey guys I am just looking for some feedback, i currently have a 4'' rough country lift kit and i want to go to a 6" lift so my plan was to buy new leaf and coil springs that were 6 inches and new extenders for my brake lines but will this work with the pitmen arm that came with my 4 inch kit and what else will i need?

any feedback would be much aprechated

If you have a 4.0, you will need the following parts:
- 6" pitman arm
- 6" lifted shocks
- 6" lift coil springs
- whatever way you planning on lifting the rear 2" more

IMO if i were you, i would just get a 2" or 3" bodylift, esp if your just liftin it to clear larger tires. It will be cheaper and id say easier too.

The only problem with doing the springs is.... will i need to get 6'' drop brakets or will my 4'' brakets that are all ready on it work?
