    I Imagine if you got Blocks for the Back that were the right size, longer u-bolts and Frnt Lift springs and Shocks You could Lift it pretty easily You could use front springs from a Kit made for a 3/4ton.

    I guess I don't understand the purpose of lifting a dually. The purpose of a dually is work! What kind of work do you do that requires a lift?:confused: :confused:

    youd be suprised in wv how many people have lifted trucks for work
    power company has alot...they have to get up in the boonies and what not...but alot of people live in these places...
