Body lift 2 inches?

My truck currently has a 6inch rough country lift. I was wondering what would be the best way to get 2 more inches, would yall recommend body lifts?

I wouldn't body lift a diesel. Are they even offered?

You move the fan center in the cooling pack and when I put a body lift in my F-150 it moved the shroud as well which would take away cooling performance.

Most places don't even off 'em for a diesel. Not only does it throw off the shroud like mentioned but the body torques too much, and those longer bolts will shear off.

body lifts are only useful when there no other lift is feasible. like IFS and such. We have leafs all around so lift is endless on these. The best way to get that extra 2 inchs is spring lift

how much does a spring lift normally run? Is it just installing bigger springs?

They are longer and arched to provide the lift. but to correctly do a lift there is alot more too it. the kits are usually $1000+

What would you say about a 2 inch front and back leveling kit?

Do you have shocks that will go to 8 inches? most are designed for 4-6 then 8-10 and if your truck doesn't have a mini spring pack and blocks now i guess you could but there is more to it lifting trucks than just doing the suspension part. there are steering parts that need to be upgraded too if they haven't already been
