    Oh just add 3” spacers to each side and the axle will be plenty wide enough!

    Those of us that are running 1 ton axles have probably covered that wider axle thing already

    Not true, lift does not decide your travel, your hocks decide your travel, if you have a 15" 6 pak you will have 15" of available travel. problem is you need to mess with the shock mounts to use all of that. If you can adjust the mounts with 6 paks to use all that 15 in travel you are looking at a 1100 CTI

    If you run a 14" 6 pack front and rear you can still achieve over CTI 1100 if you use all the travel, you'll need extra long brake lines, and to check for Drag link bind and you'll need the 5.5 coils avoid unseating in the front, also at this point, the Duraflex CA ends will be binding in the stock frame and axle brackets, you will need custom wider brackets or CAs with smaller end forgings. thats with 14" travel shocks, Thats why MC won't make a longer travel version, so much more needed to accommodate that and no market for it because you'll be into custom everything then and thats not their game.
