most if not all lift kits come with extended brake-line/ different mount brackets.
mine was an 8in superlift but i had it removed and got a 4in rough country kit it has the extended brakelines with it.
p.s. when your order a lift kit and items such as: pitman arm, carrier bearing drop bracket for rear drive line are just an option... you typically need it its a cheap way of getting extra cash from people for an 8in ift you will need the following:
drop pitman arm
-track bar relocation bracket and or adjustable track bar
-sway bar lowering bracket or extended front sway bar end links
-extended front brake-lines and most likely a new bracket
-possibly shims to get the pinion (part your drive line bolts up to) to make the angle on front drive line easier
-I did not need to get my front drive line extended but i only had like 3 inches of slip yoke travel so i recommend drive line extension shouldn't be more then $150 with new balancing
-replacement leafs, or block with oem leafs or add-a-leaf with oem leafs
-carrier-bearing drop bracket (it makes the 2 piece drive line line up with bigger lift kit)
-u bolts and hardware
-sway bar brackets or new end links
possibly extended brake lines i dont remember honestly
and usual shocks and misc hardware etc...
try and stick with:
zone, bds, fabtech, skyjacker, rough country, pro comp etc... most name brand lifts you can get complete and it will be most likely cheaper to ship to a business then your house
sorry for long post more experienced people chime in shortly...
bigger tires and wheels means possibly re-gearing front/rear difs and a upgraded brake pad/rotor will be good saftey measure
