At 6.5" you're really at the point you need a dropped pitman arm and dropped track bar bracket, or you're going to start running into bumpsteer issues.

yeah the adjustable trackbar (if you have the new style) will work. But you still need the drop trackbar bracket, pitman arm, sway bar links, bumpstop spacers, brake line brackets. I'd hate to see you ruin a quality lift like you have by piecing together parts to go bigger. You can buy all the parts seperately from ICON. Basically you would need the box kit. You'll probably be ok on the shock, but not 100% sure on that.

Here is the box kit, with everything you need:

Looks like I know where the tax check is going

I have the DR track bar so im guess its not the new one. I think I might just scrap the idea of throwing 2" spacers in sell all my 4.5" stuff and just get the 7" coils, box kit, track bar, shocks and the Russel brake line kit.

Who knows maybe that extra .5" will help weed out the 130 pound girls from the targeted 120 pound ones

Thanks for all the help
