I saw that there was a hunter conversion that did this but I can't find what they used to do it. Below is the link.

One of the things I'd be worried about is the angle of the driveshaft if you lift it. You'd probably have to lower the transfer case somehow to avoid putting a ton of stress and premature wear on your gears in the rear diff bc the angle of the drive shaft would increase.
