Default k5 lift

I am currently in the process of building a k5 blazer bogger and I need some help finding a lift. I plan on running 54" boggers so I need 20+ inche of lift. Any help is appreciated.

if you have 20 + inches of lift you will have major driveline angle issues you would have to do some figuring befor doing it i have 8 inches of suspension lift on my blazer and it busts the yoke on the rear driveshaft every 300 miles. i cant drop the transfercase any more because it has 4 inches of body lift and i can barely shift into reverse and first as it is i wouldnt recomend any more than 12 inches of suspension lift

i've got a 4" lift on mine and the driveline angle doesn't look good.

54" boggers just isn't going to happen.

exactly the only way he is going to be able to get a lift taller than 6 inches is if he got a divorced or a drop transfercase and top loading 2.5 ton axles
