Is there an issue with the front driveshaft and breaklines when going from 6.5 to 8" lift?

You could buy the Sky Jacker 8 inch lift and sell your 6.5" lift.

Skyjackers ride is to stiff ..IMO

if you want to add a few inches a hanger and shackle kit is going to be the best option. things that need to be addressed.

Shocks will need to be longer. in front
track bar may need to be replaced to a adjustable one.
front driveshaft will need lengthining,a as pacer or a longer slip joint.
brake lines ....lengthened.. or corrected
rear will need to be raised
rear shocks will need to be longer.
more shims added to carrier bearing drop if equipped
rear break line needs lengthing


body lift is not a option on a Diesel unless you customize a kit.
