Lots of guys run the 6 turned down with a shorter block in the rear, makes for really nice cv angles and you can always play with the height to get what you're looking for. Some 6 '' kits are cheaper than the 4s.

I have a 7 turned down to about a 4.. I have great CV angles and ride is nice. I had it up to 7 for a bit, but didn't like it.

Guys its the 6.2 forum, he has an 84 1/2 ton.
Its a 10 bolt up front, no advice on CVs or torsion bars needed :eek:

My 85 doesn't have any lift on it and looks great on 37s, but it is super high GVW so tall springs. Your probably not into trimming, like I did though haha. What size tire are you planning on running?
If you aren't doing any trimming I would go 6". Usually no driveshafts needed for the most part.
Is it manual or auto? Don't really want to go too big of tires with an auto unless you regear.

It really depends on what size tires you want to run. I like the small lift giant tire look myself.

This is a BDS 4" lift (all spring, no blocks) with 33" tires. I have 36" tires that fit on here too (fenders are lightly trimmed). A 1 ton might sit higher than a 1/2 ton does.

These pics are from before the paint job.
