Possible lifts for 2011 2wd sport.

I am driving a 2011 2WD Sport. 4.0L V6 with torsion bar suspension.

Currently i have my torsion bars cranked, 2.5" shackles and a 3" bodylift. Id like to make my truck higher. No limit to size really, higher the better. I cant find an RCD lift for 2wd sports. And I dont have the mechanical know how to attempt a SAS; not even sure its possible because the 2011 has all these sensors and traction/roll stability stuff.

So is there anything else I can add to my IFS to make my truck bigger? How about this setup:

Front: 3" Spindles
2.5" Torsion Twist
New Shocks

Rear: 3" Blocks
2.5" Shackles
New Shocks

Plus my bodylift. This would put me at 8.5" of lift. Would be happy with this if it would work.

Thanks


My truck now

thatll do it!

Short style add a leaf: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/EXP-13120/ good for maybe 2.5" max in rear

Long style: http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TFY-85250/ (these appear to be the long style, I am unaware) good for max 1.5" in rear

and Im unsure about a 5.5" lift from fabtech or something because of your front end sensors and tech. I have a feeling you have two options, by pass all that fancy jazz up front or wait for a proper lift that incorporates all that sensor stuff
