Custom 6" Lift?

So i'm thinking if you got the 4" superlift then the ORW coil-over conversion wouldn't that be about 6" in the front? 4 from the superlift and 2 from the coil-overs because most of the people that have them say that they can keep the 2" lift they had with the cranked t-bars with the coil-overs and could crank the coil-overs more if they wanted to... i guess my question is could i do that in the front and then get a 6" skyjacker leaf spring kit in the rear and have a full 6" suspension lift? would it be level??

P.S. - just curious if you get the skyjacker leaf springs do you remove the factory block when installing them or do you leave that there? or can you do either one?

You have to take in consideration the weight of the truck so probably around 4" after it settles. And for the Skyjackers, you get rid of all blocks and shackles and it would sit level.

so 4" SL plus ORW Coil-Over plus 6" skyjacker leaves minus factory blocks and i will have a level truck thats 4+ inches high?

next question is could i fit 35s or just 33s?

Just 33's if it were me. Now if you did a body lift on top of it then you could run 35's no problem.

Yes, and it would be level.

You can do either.

You would have 6" of lift.

33's or possibly 34's.

You'd be able to fit 35's with only a suspension lift as long as you've got the C/Os cranked up and you'd probably have to do a little trimming. I ran 35's with a body lift and t-bar crank for a little while.

I think they would, my 35"s look small as hell on my truck now.

you will fit 35s fine with the coil overs and lift.


and from above the coil over conversion will give you 6 inches of lift in the front with the 4 inch sl so you can get a true 6 inches of lift
