Adding more lift

Hey guys Ive got a quick question, I have the 2.5" lift from tuff country on my truck and I want to go up to a 4" lift, so I was wondering if there is anyway I can add to my existing lift without buying a whole new kit to achieve this or do I have to just suck it up and buy a 4" kit?

Thanks

Can't tell if you have a 250 or a 350? If you have a d60 you could get a ORU 2.5" RS kit or a Sky 3" kit and then level with a new rear block. You will need a adj track bar to recenter the axle and possibly new shocks.

I would do a SD spring change at the same time..will ride very nice! I can help you if thats the way you want to go..PM me.
