thank f**k, a refreshing post, someone who doesnt want to lower their car to be fully sik and totally impractical, maybe try and find out the specs on the Holden Overlanders? i think it was HZ that was jacked right up to 4WD height, looked good, good luck.

Did the XG have a full chassis? I didn't think that it did, which might rule out a body lift. Similar to what Disco Frank said, I think the earlier XY/W 4WD utes were also mated to a toyota chassis.

Check some 4WD forums and see what they know.

I'm pretty shore that they did use landcruiser chassis under the holden body's. I have seem a few around. If you get the big off-road wheels/tyres on with enough clearance height you would raise it all up about 8-12" easily.

you can't body lift a car that doesn't have a seperate chassis.

at the rear a mild spring lift along with a spring over axle swap shoud do it but you run into problems with the wheel arch not being big enough to take such a tire at full compression.

the front you are going to need a full rethink/ redesign to get a 6 to 8 inch lift to work.
have search around the net and check out some of teh BAJA race trucks.

you may have to settle for a mild spring lift and some body mods to gain the clearence. and also consider a smaller tyre. even a 31 is big for a falcon
