3 inch body lift question

I'm going to be getting the 3 inch body lift from summit racing probably around christmas time this year this is what im looking into. http://store.summitracing.com/partde...5&autoview=sku
question is what else do I need to make everyting fit properly? Manual shift extension? radiator brackets? I've read people have needed those on other previous body lift atempts.. What else would I need? My truck specs are 2002 2wd 5spd XLT also if i missed anything or didnt give enough info about my truck please tell me. thanks for the help guys

your truck has coil springs...no torsion bars.

There's two mounts at the back of the cab, accessed from the inside.
There's two mounts at your feet, accessed from inside the cab.
There's two mounts on either side of your radiator under the core support.

Yea...just get under your truck and you'll notice the mounts. the bed mounts are easily seen....you've got 6(or if your a longbed) bolt heads visible inside the bed.

If you don't know if you have torsion bars or not you should not try to install a body lift.
