Skyjacker 6", what else do I need.

Hey guys, I've got a 1992 Ranger 4 liter, 4wd. I just bought a Skyjacker stage 2 kit for it, and it should be here shortly. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what else I may need for it. I've read on some websites that the typical whiteboy factory driveshafts are good to go, can anyone confirm? What about brake lines and that kind of stuff? Should I be replacing any bushings just because I'll be in there anyway?

If anyone has anything to add about the kit please do. Thanks.

Well, got the lift..heres a couple pics of the truck the way it sits now, I guess i'll have to just put it on and see what i'll need...assuming brake lines for sure, but nobody seems to have advice. Pretty nice kit though, I guess SJ has redesigned their radius arms or something, these look pretty tough compared to the other ones i've seen. boxed for the win.

The truck is essentially done, I've got a few more things to do but it's all minor stuff. I've got to put my rear shocks in, front bumpstops, and a small hinge bracket. Other than that it's all good to go, I was driving it tonight a little bit, seems pretty decent aside from the no rear shock death wobble and it really needs a solid alignment. I think I may have a bad upper BJ, and no sway bar. TTB trucks are nightmares as far as alignment goes. The camber was off about 2 degrees or so on the passenger side, not really much I can do about it right now.

Heres a few pics.

Brake lines seem to be the only thing I need.
