    Anything to lift a Max to your desired lofty heights will likely involve fabrication.

    You could 'adapt' some of the Dixon Bros. or Fabtech Ranger parts.

    Good luck and happy hunting.

    Go by your local spring shop with the truck. They can get you 1 leaf or a hole pack, center bold and U bolts. 1 hour and your done.

    When I did a frame change I added a extra rear spring to my 88 D50 4X4 trapping rig to haul gear during the season and haul wood when needed just adding 1 leaf it did a noticeable hike to it! Can only do so much with the torsion bars in the front on a 4X4.

    I have 12 3inch body/bed lift blocks off of a 2000 Ranger I just scrapped make a donation to the site and I will send them to you if you can use them! $20 sound right to you?

    Has anyone tried the Rock Auto add a leaf? I guess it's the Rancho RS606. RA says it give 1"-2" lift. I'm seeking load bearing ability not a lift.
    I've also seem the Timken DVR050 rubber things that look to be just a longer stop with more flex to them for heavy loads. Anyone used them?
    On the leaf springs, is there one bushing at each end or two? They way they are sold makes it difficult to know and this is another new thing to me.
    BTW I searched add a leaf and got this as the top result. My truck is 1st gen.

    Maybe look into converting the front into a coilover setup? I bet you could retrofit something off an older Toyota.

    When they lift the bed on the 2nd gen trucks what supports the 2 center supports on each side over the rear wheels that normally drop into them pads with no bolts?
