You will need x over steering and an adjustable trac bar for the front along with longer shocks. You might need to lengthen the front drive shaft and/or clock your transfer case. For the rear you can measure your existing block and contact precision metal fab and order blocks 2" longer than what you have. They make nice ones that capture the u bolts. Longer shocks and maybe traction bars depending on how those blocks work out. Dont stack blocks, its a bad deal. Its very expensive going over 8" of lift when done correctly. If you have the money you could just order a Icon 10.5" kit, install it, then sell your 6" to get some of your money back.

you don't HAVE to do Crossover at the time of 10.5 you'll be fine without it at that time. 10-11" is the grey area for needing it or not, but I've run all mine without crossover at 10 and it was fine, I run crossover on this one but remember if you do decide to do crossover don't forget the remote track bar mount to get the angles back in spec!

you could order all PMF parts and get his traction blocks, I run 8" springs, 7" blocks and no traction bars and have ALOT of axle wrap so I recommend traction bars with anything over a 5" block.
