youve gotta understand that the front ends of these trucks does not flex very well. Most of the flex comes out of the rear. Look at Sections picture, the front end is basically parallel to the incline where the back end is flexed way out. In order to increase that number you will need to either long travel the front ($$$$$$$), sas ($$$), or increase rear travel which can be done for not as much. Still, either way you go you will need to spend a good amount of money to double that number. But good luck!
 






Here is Boomin' - bad angle picture though

Here's my best before doing the solid axle. About 9" travel up front and 14" in the rear

This is no swaybars, modified shocks up front, 2"TT, 3" BL, 35's

Disconnecting the swaybar is the biggest thing on the front, you'll go from about 2" travel to 6+" instantly. Note that it will handle quite differently though.
 






Here are some pics of my 95 Sport. Front and rear sway bars are off, stock length front shocks, 3" longer in the rear, 4 Door leaf packs. She does ok for IFS but we all knew that already.

This is as far as I got because I don't have a rear locker :(
