Best way to get 14 inches of lift

I alread have a 8.5 pro comp lift with 38s but I would like to be able to run Michelin XL 11R20 (43"). The way I figurged it out, 14 inches should be about just right to clear these tires. Now I just need to figure out how to get from where I am to 14 inches with out a bodylift.

I have thought about ordering 14 inch leaf springs from custom supension but I will still need a lot of hardware to go with it. Percision Metal Fab offers a lot the extra stuff I will need but I don't know exatly what all is required for this much lift. I also can't figure out what size or kind of shocks I should use.

Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated.

i would just talk to Treveor at PMF and have him build you the kit you need.... IMO its better than trying to build the kit yourself from diff places
