Default Help with lift options

I am getting ready to buy a lift and TRY it on my 7 lug.. I was thinking the Zone 6 inch lift, but realized it would only lift it 4 inches more, since I already have the 2 inch level. So now I am looking into the Rize 8 inch kit. Any suggestions or other kits out there that lift it up 8? Thanks for the help and responses in advance.

Thank you. You are the FIRST 1 to say they know someone with a 7 lug and it worked.. I have been told numerous times that the 4-6 inch kits wouldn't work. I don't see a difference between 6 lug and 7 lug other than the number of lugs on the hub.?

Is he a member here? I would love to somehow talk to him about it. I have been wanting to do this lift, I did a body lift JUST to raise it some.. I changed my avatar to what it looks like now. I could pm you my number if he would be willing to talk.
