    ok, i know this has been covered but this is my plan for my lift. i'd like to know what you guys think i should do if this isn't good enough. i'm not an expert like most of you guys so let me know
    i want a total of 6 or 7 inches of lift

    my plan for the rear was a shackle flip from DIY and some 2" lift springs
    for the front i was going to get some 6" springs

    i know i'll need some knew shocks but not sure which ones (this is were i need ya'lls help) i also know that i'll need some extended brake lines. is there anything else? i already have a 6" raised steering arm, and i know i MIGHT need to lengthen my shaft.

    keep in mind this is my DD but in the future it'll be my full time trail rig, so ride quality doesn't matter. i also would like to have alot of flex. but i don't want to put 52's or 56's up front, i'm no good at welding (yet)

    so what do you guy's think? what else would i need or what should i change?
