If you go 9", you need crossover steering. In addition, you need new shocks, extended brake lines, relocate the differential vents, e-brake cables, etc. Best bet is a custom set of springs, or possibly a shackle lift. The shackle lift was how I got my 6.5" lift to 9.5, it worked very well.

You know I was thinking... it's not too common you hear a man saying he needs a good 3 more inches. Just sayin'.
