You should be pretty good. You can bend the stock brakelines up in the font on the caliper to make the clearance and same on the rear. The drivelines should be OK on a 4" lift. You do want a raised steering arm or drop link, either one. You can get by for a bit without it but they are easy to find used.

You will want to run a steering brace of some kind. The hydro assist is the best deal if you can swing it.

If you plan on lifting it to put 37's on there....I would go 2wd steering box and xover steering!

A cheap way to get extended brake lines is to get 4-6" rubber extensions from your local parts store :thumb:

Dlines should be good, although 4" for the front is borderline needing extended for wheeling!
