Ordered the 6" Lift

Figured that If the 6" lift was only 80 bucks more that I'd order it. Also 4 inches of lift will cause some attention I fugred a couple more inches wouldn't hurt. Am I going to have to do brake lines in the front? And if so are they hard to do? Also what is a good tire size to run on a 6 inch lift. I don't wanna have my tires rub on some flex.... Thanks!


Also Pictures of 6 inch lifts would be nice!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It all depends on how much ACTUAL lift you get out of the kit, what height and width of tires you go with, and what backspacing you get on your wheels. I am running a ICON 7" lift and my 37's rub slightly if it I get in just the right position, like with wheels at full lock on an incline.
