I liked my sky jacker on my 82 half ton. 6 inch all spring. It rode good and flexed prety good too. def go with a long travel radius arm kit up front. youll have to have your drive shafts lengthened. I sugest going with 4.56 gears to turn 35's in your gasser. Id also go with lockers while you have the cases opened up. have fun and happy wheelin.

i was woundering if i had to do anything to the drive shafts...i am planning on gearing down but i shouldnt have to jack with the drive shafts with a four inch lift right. i bet longer drive shafts aint cheap then again if ya wanna play ya have to pay.

You don't need to lengthen your drive shafts for a 4" or 6". Only when you go to an 8", do you have to lengthen your shaft. But I wouldn't recommend an 8", it puts entirely too much stress on the stock TTB(twin traction beam suspension). Like mentioned above, get the extended rad arms and an AAL or new rear springs. NO BLOCKS! Go with the sky 6" and 35's and you'll be happy. And since you have the E4OD, go with 4.88's, you won't regret the power. You can still stroll at 70mph and turn about 2700rpms.

6"

You could also look at somebody like Camburg or Autofab for that vehicle. They do custom Beams so you don't have to use all that drop bracketry(less to break). They are kind of expensive, but they both get like 16-20 inches of travel easily. A google search of Camburg will show you, also look at Autofab Offroad Trucks.

Definitely ^^^^ if you have the cash but these aren't the cheapest. If your just wanting a little height and some off road fun, sky or superlift will be plenty enough for you.

thanks for the link i been looking for a solution for my tailgate...pos got some cancer on it and its a little bent. i like that fiberglass one but 850 is a little steep but i have yet to find one that aint rusted or bent. so it would be in my best interest to spend the extra $$$ on the stage two kit instead of the stage one kit that just has springs and drop bracket.
