i think tuff country makes a 5" suspension lift, then you could add a body lift for a total of 8" of lift. keep in mind that pretty much everyone agrees the tuff country wont last very long at all if actually used offroad. so it better be all for show and no go. if you do plan on offroading get the 3" rancho suspension lift and the 3" body lift. with those you can run 35" tires and that is about as big as you would need to go considering the weak front axle housing and Bj's on dakotas. hope this helps

I'm sure you've already thought of it, but why not just go with a solid axle swap? If you're looking to lift that much, then that'd be the way I'd go. I'm actually in the process of gather parts for my swap. IMO, huge IFS lifts are a waste of time: all "show" and no "go". Though they allow you to mount larger tires, they don't do anything for your articulation or travel. Just my $2/100.

Good luck with your search!
