    Why would you want that much lift I like to keep my center ov gravity down low? I might go up to 7 or so but that will be with 3" of body lift

    longer driveshafts. Steering stuff, crossover best but I guess raise arm, dropped pitman, and drop draglink would get it close. 10" swamprunner kits from Superlift come with steering stuff I know.

    The raised steering arm, dropped draglink, longer drive shafts, longer brake lines, parking brake, I think thats about it.

    your driveshaft angles are going to be misearble. if you have a pickup you could run a divorced tcase, although in a blazer, the divorced case is going to make your rear shaft angle even worse. i would recomend staying at or below a 6" suspension lift if you plan on keeping a stock tranny-tcase combo.
