Don't forget about F-150s and 1500 Silverados and Sierras.

It depends on what you're trying to do. I've got f250, explorer, early bronco, and jeep stuff all on my B2!

Mine's about 10" over stock. Look through a few build threads, there's plenty of cool stuff to read through.

Your best bet is a washer lift, Explorer leaf springs, and a body lift. Or buy an off the shelf lift kit.

We may repurpose other parts, most of the time they are new parts, and the price and build times add up significantly.

Yeah, I pieced together my front lift... but it wasn't cheaper than a basic lift, but it is better.

f250 shock towers
3.5" Early Bronco Lift Coils
Homemade extended Radius arms
VMS Drop Bracket, Homemade Drop bracket on the other side
Jeep JKS quick disconnects on the sway bar
etc.... it's all in my build thread, start on page 123

I'm gonna say no.... I didn't try it. Probably depends on flex.

They'd fit, kinda. On stock wheels. A quick and cheap 1"-1.5" washer lift would really help. But don't expect it not to rub the radius arms when turning, or the fenders when stuffed.

Superlift stuff is fine.

Shocks won't give you lift. The +2 means it's made for a 2" lift setup. It's 2" longer than a stock shock.

body lift doesn't change your suspension geometry.. therefore, you don't need longer shocks
