Determined....

So i have a 2003 f250 crew short bed diesel 2wd which i recently installed a 6 inch pro comp lift with 35's toyo m/t's and 20 inch kmc rockstars, and now i want to go higher. Unfortunately there are only two companies out there that make 6 inch lifts, which is the highest i have found for a 2wd, out there. I am determined to go higher without buying a 4wd or getting a body lift, please let me know if you know any small company that has made a bigger lift for one of these or anyone that has one already done. If there is a shop out there that is interested in building me a custom lift, hit me up!!!!

I know the odds are not in my favor on this one, but like i said im determined, love my truck and dont ever use 4wd so dont see the point in paying extra for it.

Thanks!!!
Brandon

I dont know where you live but around here in SW ohio we have a place called Dent Spring, which specialize is suspension for stock or lifted/lowered vehicals. And I had a buddy who had a 2 wheel truck(dodge i think) that couldn't get any bigger then like 4 inches or something lift but he went there and had them make him springs and it was cheaper then even buying a 4 inch lift. Just an idea you might want to look into, if you have any suspension shops near you.

i live in california, but thats a good idea just go to a spring shop and have them make me some, i am just not sure if i will then have to get some other parts made as well. Some one told me they dont go any higher because it messes up the alighnment, but i dont see that as being true. My guess is because its more that the demand isn't there yet.

I honestly would be satisfied if i could just get it to the height of a 4wd with a 6 inch or 8 inch lift. This is my daily driver so i dont want it too high, but right now its not high enough 8 would be awesome so basically like another 3-4 inches, it would be awesome if they could add on to the pro comp.

not sure if they can add to the pro comp.. it will prob be a whole new kit... also a better way to do this is straight axle your front end and put some leafs their..... it would prob be the easiest too....

With i beams in the front the higher you go the more positive camber the tires will have.

Does that make the front end weaker?
