6" lift on Regular Cab

Does anyone have any pictures of a 6" lift on a regular cab 350? Or even a 250? Do you have have to modify the front or rear driveshaft to make a 6" lift kit work well? Also, do you need brake line extensions?

no brake lines needed, i helped to a 8" conversion from a 6" pro comp kit on a 03 4 door longbed, had stock brake lines, 8" came with a carrier bearing drop kit and a driveshaft spacer, to lengthen the front, but i would recommend the carrier bearing drop on the 6"

I just did mine today, 6" on a regular cab F250. No driveline mods needed and brake lines are plenty long enough. I will post pics tomarrow as it is getting to dark to take them.
