6" lift questions

Guys and Gals,
Got a lift question. A friend of mine wants to trade his 6 inch Superlift kit from a 08 F250 for my 08 F350 LB stock kit. Sounds good right!? Questions are does this amount of lift lessen gas milage? Do I need any additional parts? He is willing to straight trade this lift with Bilstien shocks for my stock kit. Also, is thinking about trading his Nitro Grapplers for my Firestones. I am new to diesels AND lifts. Any advice, kind or harsh, will be greatly appreciated.

If it didn't suck for some reason, he wouldn't want to trade it.
