4x4/lifted task force leaf spring source?

I’ve decided to do a 4x4 conversion on my build since the truck is going to reside in Colorado.

Has anybody gotten taller than stock leaf springs to lift the truck? It seems like you get 4” or so of lift just putting a live axle under the truck with stock springs, so looking for another 4” or so to make plenty of room for tires.

Also has anybody mounted up a 37” tire on a task force truck? If so, how much lift and post a pic of you have one please!

53 buick special - straight 8 sled - blow through turbo
47 gmc - flatbed hot rod build
99 ford econoline e350 - 4x4 converted family roadtrip/overlanding rig AKA 'Monstervan' AKA 'Daddy-Van'

A good spring company should be able either to build you a set of springs to meet your needs or rework yours. There should be more than one in the Houston area.
Or mail order such as
Founding member of the too many projects, too little time and money club.

My ongoing truck projects:
48 Chev 3100 that will run a 292 Six.
71 GMC 2500 that is getting a Cad 500 transplant.
77 C 30 dualie, 454, 4 speed with a 10 foot flatbed and hoist. It does the heavy work and hauls the projects around.
