    but wouldnt they collapse under all the added weight??? i mean dodges are about the same weight as chevys or at least closer than any jeep.

    plus im mainly just talking about the front. i mean after 8" apparently you lose alot of flex in the front... which is true. i wish my flex on my new burb was as good as my old. but if i wanted to go with something taller than six inches then i was thinking that you could use dodge 7" coils and 1" spacers, and getting some coil mounts off of a 94 dodge v8.
