Lift kit Question

I have a 76 dodge power wagon (3/4 ton 4x4) and I want a 12 inch suspension lift for it, but haven't had any luck finding one. I was wondering if there were any out there or if I could combine an 8 inch and a 4 inch to get the 12 that I want.

I don't think your wife/girlfirend/whatever would like that. But you wouldn't have any trouble finding a parking spot- just park right on top of the import over there.

You might be able to swap suspension parts from other makes to get the desired results if properly thought through.
I just checked and they make the 12 inch lift for Chevys, 8 inch for Dodge 1/2, 3/4 & 1 ton, and didn't find over a 6 inch for fords. I only looked for a couple minutes though.

What is your main intended purpose for this truck?

A well engineered modified suspension could be built, but you would be putting your safety in the hands of the builder, which could be, in the long run a very bad thing if driven on the streets.

Where in Pa are you? I know of a spring place not far from my location that should be able to bend you a new set of leaf spring packs for what you are looking for.

i dont have a wife/girlfriend at the moment, this is to piss off the ex girlfriend by parking on her a-hole fathers little foriegn "truck". i want it to be a one of a kind truck, something that nobody else has ever seen or will ever see. i live in the altoona area, but my truck is at my moms in NY. if you have any info on where i can find parts for this then let me know. if i have to, i will stay with just an 8 inch, because i want to stack one frame on top of another, and add 6 more inches of body lift with 44 inch tires. on top of all this, i am putting a 56 dodge pickup body on it (with a built in roll cage and roll bars in the bed) it will not be a daily driver, but it will be road legal when im done.
Thanks for the help
