Shouldn't need longer lines. I don't have any pictures but I'm sure there are a few people that will post up. Is it a 4x4? As far as what size tire you can clear, it depends on what rims you are going to run. If you stick with stocks rims, you can run a narrower 35 with a torsion crank and a slight trim..... but if you go with an aftermarket rim it all depends on what BS and if you decide on x8s or x10s. Try searching, there are TONS of threads about what size tire you can clear with what lifts.

As long as you get a Performance Accessories body lift "kit", it should come with everything needed. Minus the optional, and very needed gap guards.

i agree!

on the BL- you wont need anything to lift it. just something 2 or 3 inches tall, and longer bolts.

you will need to make some sort of drop down for your fan shorouds however, this can be done wilth a piece of flat stock cut 3 inches long, with 1/4in holes in the ends. Included in PA kit.

You also need a linkage for your steering shaft, that will lengthen it and keep it from binding. it can be made by any machine shop. PA kit comes with it.

theres also some misc brake line things to hold your lines, i gotem with the kit, and thats where they r still at.

you will also need a tube for your gas filler neck to extend it. i think its just a thin piece of aluminum pipe thats 2 inch. comes with PA kit.

you will need some bumper brackets up fron, 3 inches offset up. theres also a mount thats a 3 inch plate to lift your outside bracket. rear is a separate kit by itsself. all included in PA kit minus rear. thats separate.
hope that helps!
