I think their is a junk yard lift you can put together for it the other guys know more about it than i do but i think you can put coil springs in the front out of an f150 an rear leafs from a s10 or sumpthing .One of my buddys did a lift on a jeep cherokee useing that combo
Just a sugestion might be a good avenue to research.

dont put f150 coils in it, it will ride like a tank. why not put on a set of 31's and wheel it and see how you like it before you sink a bunch of money in it just to find out thats not what you really wanted to do with the truck?

if it were me, id put the manual hubs on, 31's, and a rear locker and shitkick it.

Hey No Offense Squishy but i thought f150 coils from two wheelers are pretty
soft. :confused0006: :dontknow:
But do a little research on ''Junkyard Lifts'' in general not just the combo i said.
just my two sence[cheers]
