1968 J2000 lift springs

I have a '68 J-2000 that needs some springs, it is on 35" now but needs to be taller.

I am having a hard time finding kits or springs, can anyone help me out?

The reason you're having a hard time finding springs is that there are no aftermarket lift kits for older J series pickups. Go over to http://www.ifsja.org and into the technical forum. You can do a search to see what others have done to lift our old rigs.

you can get four inch lift springs from superlift, or if you really want to go higher you can get bj's off road six inch kit, but it's kinda of pricey. if I were you, and this is the route i went on my wag, get the four inch lift springs and then use the shackles from any rear spring chevy pickup for an extra half an iinch.

BJs doesn't have lift kits for the older J series pickups yet, just the Wagoneers.
