Some Small Lift Questions

Ive read alot of peoples thoughts that contradict on this forum, many other forums, and just surfing the web. I obviously know that peoples vehicles were taken care of in different ways and different work has been done so opinions will vary but im looking for some other views upon these things.

--1.25 inch body lift and around 1.5 inch shackle lift (give or take .25")--
*What will definitely need to be relocated? I know the radiator has drop brackets but what else..fuel filler, brake lines, any wires, steering shaft, etc?????
*Do I need engine lift mounts?
*Do I need bigger shocks than stock size?
*Will the body lift effect shifting, reverse and 4th gear mostly? Trimming the tub is necessary?

I forgot some things I wanted to point out but I can go on forever on with the little things ive read about but these seemed to stick out as the most important.

Will the things ive asked about work with either the body lift alone or shackle lift alone but not both combined? Or vise versa? Or will I need some of these mods with both but not one of them?

Once again, I have read different answers to these same questions and just want to be sure. I know I might get crap for asking such stupid questions but never doing a lift, I just want to know exactly. Thanks alot everyone, I appreciate the help.
