DII 3" lift...what am I forgetting???

Okay, I'll be doing the 3" DII lift as recommended by EE.

I'd like to run 255/85R16 (33" or so) tires.

I've heard from folks who insist that gears need to be changed for this tire size, and those who run that size and say that they are not in a rush to change the gears, though they plan to in the future.

Besides brake line/ABS extensions, what else do I need beyond the lift?

I know that I'll likely need to adjust the steering stops and that my driveshaft(s) will need to be replaced at some point.

Truck: '01 DII 61K miles.

Thanks for the help,

255/85 is too big. I prefer 265/75 on the stock 8" rims or, even better, 235/85 on narrower rims.

Ho's flares

Ho, if find the flares that you removed from your truck, let me
know. I'll buy them from you.

Thanks
Claudio
