I have a 03 XLT v6. 3.0L. With a 6" suspension lift and 3" body lift. I'm running 33's, so all and all I've got a good lift going, but my problem is I want to go higher. I'm pretty new to this whole thing, and I can't find anything online that will get me past what I already have. Any suggestions would be great

Getting a bigger tire. I running a stock 4x4 lift on 33s with 3 inch body. There is nothing above a 6 inch suspension life you will have to make it your self.

It's not like a jeep at the same point your at they have to push axles out by a foot or so with dana 60s. To make the correct drive line angles, but most of the keeps that far into lifts are not on the road.

4 link front and rear, with coil-overs. Driveline angles are what is gonna stop you next.

I'd cut sheetmetal before going taller. Keeping a low center of gravity is good if you plan to go anywhere other than the mall.

Getting even as tall as it is now is a lot, bigger tires are best and cutting fenders to get there... I cut fenders to fit my 35's and I honestly don't know how much lift I have since it's shrunk over the years... It used to be around 6" up front and level in the back now it's higher in the back...

Saying all that, I've rolled mine... but that was more of a function of lost momentum since it stalled on a side hill...
