10'' + Lift pics and info

Hey guys im looking into buying a 10in + lift. Will i have any issues with drive shaft angles, or will have to extend them? also any other hidden costs or anything im going to have issues with... shocks... brake lines ? i want to put 40 inch tires for sure on it. pics of 10 in lift or more would be greatly appreciated. i was thinking spring and shackle combination so i can do it for cheaper.

Thanks !

yes there will be... all depends on what kit you get... the more expensive kits will come with almost everything needed... but expect to drop the carrier bearing, crossover stearing, longer brake lines, regearing the diffs

here is my Ex on a 10.5 DR lift with all those extras i talked about

Nice looking rig you have there, what do you mean by the carrier bearing ? and cross over steering what does that give you... is it to make it easier to steer ? and why regearing the diffs ?

Your truck is a single cab long bed, it may be a 1pc driveshaft, so no carrier bearing drop for you.

This is what I spent for my 12.5" kit, it is going to be real similar to a 10" kit. You can get this stuff for a little cheaper then this... but it is close...

- Icon 12.5" lift kit - 3,285.00 (comes with crossover steering)
- One Up Offroad Traction Blocks - 1,363.93
- Attitude Performance Re-indexing Ring for the Transfercase - 275.00
- Attitude Performance Transmission Crossmember - 299.00
- Dynatrac Ball Joints - 689.00
- Spyntec Wheel Bearings - 2000.00
- One Up Offroad extended my rear driveline - 1,380.00
- Stainless Brake Lines - 151.80
- Icon's Signature Series Reservoir Shocks - 796.00
- One Up Offroad Carrier Bearing Drop Kit - 175.28 (You don't need this)
- Some 40" Toyo M/t's - 2800.00 (I got this a lot cheaper off craigslist)

That all adds up real quick too...

When you clock your transfercase 20 degrees to lower your front driveline, it ends up running right into the front crossmember.
