true that buddy, well i found a company topguncustomz.com and they have a 5.5in lift and thats the biggest ive found unless i get a 2500 lift which they have a 6in lift. but i already have 2.5in coil spacers which is the leveling kit so i think ill get 5in springs in the front and keep the spacers on and run dual shocks, so it will be a total of 7.5in in the front and 5in in the rear i know it will have the bull frog stance, thats what i was trying to go for but im not sure if it will be too much. let me know what you think, this is my 100th post so i figured i make it a nice long one.

I was gonna recommend the topguncustomz kit for a big lift, but for the most part, after 6", you're looking at a custom kit normally. There are a few 8" kits, but they're for the 3rd gen from what I've seen.

Sounds like it might be a 6" 2500 lift + a body lift to get 8.
