    I have been trying to find a dealer or somebody who can get me a 9.5 or 12 inch lift for my GMC HD but all my searching has come up empty handed with lots of facts and pics but none for sale. Any help would be great.

    Only one thing comes to my mind bout 12" a lift.....why??? ya wanna test the dirty side up theory?
    Now seriously that is wayyyy to much lift to be safe it massivly upsets the roll over center of gravity and really makes a truck unsafe for road.

    If your truck has an independant front suspension, you probably aren't going to find a lift that big. You would be MUCH better off finding a custom offroad fabrication shop and getting them to swap a SOLID FRONT AXLE!! With a lift as big as you're talking about, it would probably be about the same price, if not cheaper to go Solid axle, and it will be MUCH stronger. If you want to stay with the independant front suspension, grab you a 4x4 offroad magazine and write them with your questions, they're usually pretty knowlegeable.

    i agree with matt. a solid axle would be better for you, but if you dont want to do that take it to an offroad shop and see if they can build you a custom lift. it is going to be more expensive, but i dont know of anyone that makes one that big for that truck.
