*New Pics* 8 inch lift to a 10 inch lift!!!

The Fabtech 8 inch lift kind of wore on me since it was installed back in November 2007, so i thought i would spice it up a little bit. Before the rear was 1/2 taller than the front, now it sits exactly level all the way around, love it!! Also would like to add that before all of this was installed the truck rode and drove great, i was very happy and pleased with it. But now, WOW, it rides even better, it is amazing what a good set of shocks will do on a big truck! The tires are 38.50/14.40. (you can tell a noticable difference by looking at the 2 pics in my signature when it was still a 8 inch lift).

New products used on my truck for this project were:
-Topgun Customz 2.5 leveling kit
-Pro Comp 4 inch blocks (with built in bumpstop)
-Longer ubolts
-Stem to eye conversion bracket for new front shocks
-Bilstein 14 inch 5125's with medium valving
...still need to lengthen my panhard bar tho

Looks great! That is a good amount of blocks in the rear. You might want to get some 8" rear springs.

Thanks for the info, i may look into that one these days, but i only drive the truck maybe once or twice a month up the road and back so for now i think it will be fine.

just beside lowering the mounting point down a little where the driveshaft meets in the middle is all. i still had a few shims lift over from my 8inch lift, and it worked great, so now i have all of the shims on that came with the original lift. i only added maybe 3/4 of a inch to what i already. there was not that much wobble when accelerating but i could still feel it so i put them in, of course this take all but 3 mins lol. but the shims, adjusting hiems on the sway bar up a few rounds and modifying the stock track bar or buying a new one are the only other things you will need. also remember to get longer shocks too, good luck man.
