Body Lift for 7.3 F250??

I know I am going to have to install electric fans, and get new piping for the intercooler. But is there any other obstacles that I may need to know about before installing a body lift on a 7.3 diesel??

They offer one, but it's for the gas models. I'm sure all the cab and bed bolts align the same.
