most of the time everything is included in a kit.... but you should regear for the larger tires, upgrade the stock brakes, dual stearing stab also helps. longer break lines as well

8" lift

Just put an 8" Icon lift on my Superduty. You will need to lenghthen the drivelines, shocks, brake lines and vacuum lines if you have auto hubs. The steering works fine although it is at a rather steep angle. If your lift kit doesn't come with it, you will probably need an adjustable track bar (Panhard bar) too.

Excursion

That is a sweet looking Excursion Raul. What lift, tire, wheel combo are you running on that. I just bought a 2000 EX that I am going to put a lift and tires on after I yank the V-10 and auto out.

Ex's

I don't have mine yet, but I am assuming that the short box crew cab superdutys will share a lot in common with the Ex's (Like the one piece drive shaft). At least that is what I am hoping when I start the 7.3/6 speed swap on mine.
