you shouldnt have any issues really. Just realize the larger BL you do, the more way your Tub can have if its not properly installed/time. No need to extend Brake Lines.
Yea shift issues suck, I still need to cut mine but I dont have anything to cut it with = \

It's worth the investment to get the Front Brakelines & Extensions. if you flex offroad, it will pull tight and could be a potential issue.

RE, Teraflex and few other have kits out there that can be bought for decent price.

The stock Rubber Brake lines are good upto a 4" lift give or take. No reason to get longer ones. However, the metal lines may need to be adj where they connect to the rubber lines, as they will move up with the body lift. I would also flex text it and note if there is strain on any of the lines before hitting the trail.
