Lifts above 12in

Anyone have a lift above 12in. I am thinking about a 14in Full Throttle suspension lift but wanted to know if anyone has one or not. Pics? Ideas?

Thanks

I want to do 14 inches but I think Im going to do a little bit different septu thatn what theirs is. You should talk to Trevor at Precision Metal Fab. He can help you build a good quality lift of that size at a decent price.

thanks man il give him a call. i got a quote from full throttle suspension for a 14in lift with everything from reservoir shocks(6) to cross over steering, trac bars, and drive line spacers. came out to 6135 which i dont think is that bad. he said that i would be able to fit at least 42s

Do you know what brand of shocks that is? Just wondering? The only thing I don't like about their lift is that they use 14in leaf springs in the front. From what I understand that makes the ride very stiff. I would rather use 10in leaf springs and 4in hanger. Im not an expert though this just my opinion from doing my own research. It really just depends on exactly what you want though. Using the 14in kit from full thorottle might not be idea because it will take a lot of the headache and guess work on trying to make everything work togather. Just my 2 cents.

they are the 2.0 Full throttle suspension shocks. Yes i bet the ride would be very very rough!! But wouldn't steering stabilizers and cross over steering help a bit!!?The 10in leaf with a 4in hanger might be smart though. Are you planning on doing somewhere around a 14in lift too?

Yea the steering should be fine as long as you have cross over steering. Yea im also planing on a 14in lift and running 43in michilens. With 14 inches you should be able to run 44s but they will fit kind of snug.

I will have to take a look at those. Im thinking about the 42in goodyear mtrs or some type of super swamper but super swampers would wear like crazy. What width and size rim are you thinking about running?

nice, i talked to trevor today at Precision metal fab. i think a 8in spring with a 6in shackle up front and a 7in block with 8in spring is the way to go. where are you getting your 43s? are they just called michilen 43s or what is the real name so i can look them up?
