I wanna go BIGGER...

So check it out guys. I just installed my 6.5" Pro Comp suspension lift, and I think my truck looks GREAT. But...I wanna go bigger now! Is there anyway (hopefully an inexpensive way) to get a couple more inches? I don't know maybe blocks or hangers or something, i'm not too sure. Any inputs are welcomed. Thanks in advance guys.

If you have the complete Pro Comp 6.5 lift now and want say another 2 inches do hangers in the front plus (longer shocks and adjustable trac bar) and blocks and longer shocks and U-bolts in the rear

You'll also need to shim the carrier bearing some to correct driveline angle

Looking for 05-07 front end with Harley Lights

Did you add bigger shackles all the way around or what? What kit and where did you buy it? More descriptive please. I want to clear 38's.

procomp makes an exact kit to make their 6.5" to a 8.5" kit... its very easy to install and all it really is is the parts they take out of a 8.5" kit to make it a 6.5" kit

if you need a price PM me and ill shoot it over
