I agree, 6" is possible with relocating the brake line brackets, but the slop yolks will barely be holding on. It will be drivable, but I'm not sure how much abuse it would handle.

I noticed yours is a extended cab, my brothers is a standard cab. I think he also had a drive shaft spacer?

See signature...I am running a 6" lift on an '00 Ext cab short bed and have more than enough of my slip yoke engaged. It gets beat on regularly and hasn't given it up yet. Only my brake lines are lengthened.
