Agreed.
With high center of gravity like that you can get yourself tipped over pretty quick. Along with the fact that those big tires will be super wide so you won't fit anywhere tight at all.
Huge lifts are street queens for sure.

I'm up 8" and on 37's, I am only that high to keep myself from contacting metal components, which I need to notch a bracket I cut off some more to keep my panhard from contacting.

But it is necessary for you to be that high since you did the sas.
With an OBS you can drop in a d60 with no lift at all and be good.

Your truck also wasn't a crew cab long bed. See what I'm gettin at.
He said he won't be rock crawling, but I'm sure it could get all sorts of off camber when up that high half in half out of a mud hole being so long.

thats true, plus my truck was almost 2.5 foot wider than stock so that helped tremendously

With a d60 it won't be any wider than stock front and for some stupid reason the 10.25 is like two inches uh shorter on each side, a 2" wheel spacer is needed for the track width to be the same.

So now you have a 20 foot long 10 foot wide box to be off roading. Don't sound like fun to me.
I just think 12" is way too much unless a street queen show truck, or a dedicated mud rig.
Any other form of offroad sounds risky.
