    Lifting Advice

    I just retired from the Navy and as a gift to myself I am going to buy myself a 2013-2014 F150 or Tundra (still on the fence with that one).

    My main question is about shopping for gear for either a 6" or an 8" lift. My heart has always told me 8" but I am afraid at that height, there is a lot more cost than an average lift. My plan is to shop 90% of what is needed and have it professionally installed.

    Everyone I know that knows anything about this stuff says that most 6" will go one a truck without extra effort. But graduating to 8" things change a lot. (drive lines and the such)

    I am looking for advice and how to approach this.

    I have dreamed of a truck on 8 inches and 37 or 38s for ever and feel if I go with 6" I wont be happy. Just want to do it right the 1st time.

    Please help.

    First off what state are you in? Do they have lift laws?

    I live in Wisconsin and I do not think there are any lifting laws that will bother me at 6" or 8".

    So that's it? No help because WI lift law says 5"? You know how many good old boys out here have massive trucks? You can have 5 DUIs here before they force you to stop driving. I doubt they will call in SWAT for an 8" lift.

    I'd talk to your local 4x4 shop.
