hell creek

so i was told that hell creek had a suspension lift in both 4 and 6 inch for a 68 gladiator but according to the site its only offered in 4 inch for 63-69 and the 6 inch lift being only available for 74-75 and 76-87 so is it true that for my application (being a 68 gladiator) i only have a 4 inch lift option? if so how can i pull 6 inches of lift on it?

i'm not sure if they are working on a 6" lift for your rig but you can add 2" blocks to the rear and have a local spring company make up a pair of 6" leaf springs for the front.

Call hellcreek, they will most likely make you up a set of springs.

From what I have seen, the production springs for the early Jtrucks comes out closer to a 6" lift than a 4".

What are you planning on doing in this truck, because the axles are not the strongest and if you put 35's of bigger and do hard wheeling you may be going through a lot axle parts.

Tom is on here as Hellcreek... send him a PM and he'll get back to you very quickly. He often has specials on Ebay... search for fsj lifts or jeep lifts.
