Why would you have to do brake lines? That length is dependent on the distance between the frame and axles, which you're not changing.

Don't do a 2" body lift, you'll hate the gap.

i recommend not going over 1.25" for a body lift...

you'll be right at the limit for brake line extensions as well as other extensions. Some get away with a 2" lift and no brake line extensions some done. I know you'll need to extend your fuel filter though which is a pain.

Again, highly recommend not to go over 1.25"

LOL....you're trying to say he needs a fuel FILLER extension. That's the only thing that would need extending.

Regardless, 2" is too tall.
