Body lifts include a bracket for almost everything but in reality, you really have to eyeball it and see if you need it. For me, my fuel filler hoses did just fine without that metal extension thingy, used the steering and radiator brackets, bumper brackets, however for most of the other random things most of my cables and stuff had plenty of slack and didn't need them.

it makes it easier to do the spark plugs, you can reach the O2 sensors easier aswell. Doesn't seem to effect me when I do oil changes.

Still got two questions I couldn't find answered:
Will it be harder or wierd to shift with the extension?
Will I notice a big difference on the highway and feel like Im going to tip? My buddy put a 3" bl on his taco and said its really flimsy on the highway.
Redneck stone, might as well add these in a FAQ section on the bl sticky

your first clue is he drives a taco. I drove my truck for a week with the same wheels and tires before the lift it drove the same honestly. but BIG rule of thumb if you go up GO OUT. thus wider tires and wheels.. makes it more stable my truck rides excellent with 33x12.5
