I also agree to adding an add a leaf for capacity but not for height. A junkyard leaf is possible but a spring shop can easily handle your needs the first time around. You will want an overload helper spring that comes into action as weight is added.

Oh okay sweet guys thanks! I'll have to do some research about shops in town or regionally. And oh I agree solid axel isn't a bad thing, and that dodge truck sounds pretty jeepy to me. Haha and yes, it's kind of a pointless argument ifs vs solid, especially in modern vehicles. I would go for a diesel unlimited in a heart beat. I wonder how a diesel 2014 GC would do. If you could manage the lift on your own and have the cash, that would probably be almost optimal. They're super comfortable, capable, and tough. But the older trucks have simplicity on their side. It's all a matter of know how.

These sort of questions have come up several times recently on the Offroad Passport forum as more folks consider joining us on our expedition style trips. Come out and get the answers! We'll be presenting some tips & tricks and be open to general questions on these topics at our Meet, Eat & Greet event this Saturday (2/1/2014) near Cave Creek, AZ. Our sister club, 4x4 Ham, will be there discussing trail communications (HAM rigs, CB's, antenna basics, etc.)

This is a free event, open to anyone, and the trail is doable in nearly any stock 4x4. We hope to see a lot of new faces there ready to ask questions!
