Lift Questions

Ok i put on the leveling leafs up front last year and now i want some more alittude. I looking to get the 4inch hanger system for the front and 4 inch blocks in the rear.

So heres my question would this equate to a 6 inch lift or would it be a 4 inch with keeping the leveling leafs on?

If the front springs gave you 2" then adding a 4.5" hanger kit will end up a 6.5" lift. You will need a adj track bar added to the kit and correct length shocks. 4" blocks will put the rear lower than the front if thats what you want??
We can get you the correct parts tpo get the result you want. PM if I can help.

Will 4 inch blocks be safe in the rear on top of the factory blocks?

Alot of people do it , but stacking blocks isn`t the best or safest thing to do. I know that Icon and some others make a single 6" block for the rear.

I agree! I have a set of Icon 8" springs in the rear and a set of OneUpOffroad traction block system. It`s a system with the lift block and traction bars built to work together. One Up Offroad Home
