questions before i put in my bl

my dad wanted me to check and make sure what things have to be done bc on the performance accessories site it says that the brake lines have to be altered and so does the steering column, is this true? what else is there?

the lines need just a little adjusting and the kit has the steering wheel shaft extension included..
just have a blow torch ready for the cab bolts

I didn't have to move my grounds are at all. Just make sure to loosen the bolts before you life just so it doesn't get stretched too far. A torch makes breaking the cab bolts so much easier

the brake lines relay dont need much coaching just pop them all out of there mounts that way you dont bind them up ...... just take your time and watch that nothing binds up
