Need MOAR LIFT

I've been wanting more height... The specs right now are Tbar crank (Sagging 1 bars) 3 inch body lift and 32x11.5-15's I would like to be a little taller but I need help with the front. I'm fine with the back ill just throw 6400's in the back. Help me out with the front.

with a 4x4 you can really only max your bars out or buy new ones that arent sagged. get aftermarket keys and max them out which would be pretty hard on all of the front end componets. Get a used superlift or RCD. You could do a coilover swap but im not sure if it porvides any more lift or just helps ride quality.

Honestly, if you want more lift in the front even after a t-bar crank, then you will have to put more stress on the front end.

Get some new bars, and some keys. Then buy my RCD shackles.

don't get keys unless you want to replace your CV axles after a while.

same with coilovers. if you go higher than you do with a maxed torsion bar set up, goodbye cv's lol

Dont worry, Dave is accustomed to changing everything on his truck lol.

If he has already cranked his t-bars all the way, then adding shackles will only give him the horrid rake. unless new bars will make it not as bad.
