6" is as high as I have seen. Several years ago I had a '88 and could only get a 6". I'm not sure if anyone has started making any higher lifts, but I doubt it. I cleared 44" with a 6" lift and 3" body lift. You can do a shackle reversal on the front, and it will net about 8" with the 6" kit. You will probably have to use lift springs instead of lift blocks in the back and use smaller blocks to level it out, since the 6" kit will level the truck and the shackle reversal is also designed to level it. The 6' kit with blocks will come with 6" front springs and about 4" blocks. The shackle reversal will add another 2 inches and you would have to add more blocks, but I would not stack blocks. If you get the 6" kit with rear springs, then you should have to add 2" blocks. Hope that makes since.

you can do a 6" lift with a reverse shackle kit to get it up another 2 inches.. that way you can easily fit 38's.... let me know if you have any questions

is the reverse shackle kit like a body kit? I was originally going to go with a 6" suspension and 3" body but I was talking to someone that had one and said that he had bad body roll with the body lift.......it looks cool tho
