I'm have '05 Scab 5.4 and have 6" lift with 36" tires and 3.73 rear. Will be upgrading to 4.10 gears soon... Sounds like the set up you want should work. Show pics when done.!

I am about to buy a 97 F-150 ext cab 4x4.How hard is it to put a lift on one of the truck with that damn waste of space independent frontend.Need a donor truck for a solid axle swap.The kicker is this is going to be my daily driver.

C-6 with shift kit before the truck would
L&L headers with single chamber flowmasters and turn downs and L&L ladder bars
4in ruff country lift with a 2in body kift.
35x12.50-15 mud tires on 15x10 chrome and black modular rims
cd player,2 amps,2 600watt Sony 10s
4.10 gears with a locker in the rear
Future plans is to level it up .Hate the ass end sitting higher that the front.AND scrap the crappy C-6 for a manual.

1985 Bronco 427 small block
Small cam for the moment,all aluminam top end
max cool radator,headers and 2 1/2 exhast with flowmaster and echo tips
C-6 with a 208 transfer
33x12.50-15 all terrain tires
8000 warn winch and brush guard
Needs a 5 speed and a solid front axle liek it should have came!!!!!!!!
