First Lift, What am I not thinking about...

Ok, so i just got my 02 250SD CC/LB, all stock... Not for long! I want to raise it up 6in and get some 35's. I have never had a lifted truck or any friends with anything more than a leveling kit. I have been reading around and its seems like superlift or skyjacker are good ones. I know I need to replace the brake lines but what else am I not thinking about before i buy this lift?
and how much is this going to cost me after all is said and done, in know there are guys out there that know this number all to well. Any help would be great. Thanks guys

I would recommend pro comp. I have a pro comp 4 in lift and everything I needed came with the kit. I spent right at 1200. That is including installation.

Yea its level. Actually the kit is 4 in. in the front and like 2.5 in. in the rear. Yea it sits level though and yes 35's fit. Mine rub the springs if i turn too sharp but that can be solved with some spacers. As far as fender clearance, yea theres plenty of room for the 35's. No i dont think the brake lines had to be changed. I had a shop install it but im almost positive they didnt have to mess with the brake lines. Like i said....they installed what came with the kit and it works great for me.

i bought mine with a 4" lift and 35" tires, fit fine, it had rancho shocks, so i assume its a rancho lift not sure tho, a guy at work just put a 6" and 35's and paid about 3K for everything including wheels and tires, i think it could use 37" the 35's look to small

If your looking for a great riding lift you need to look further than the ones that been talked about. Icon is the best.
To fit 35" all you need is a 4.5"hanger lift which will ride better with the correct shocks..Bilsteins or Icons, that anyones spring lift kit.
