Default body lift kit

Hi there,im thinking of getting a body lift kit, with no more than a four inch lift, but what im not sure of is what happens to the aircon and radiator hoses as everything gets lifted and engine stays put ,do i have to get longer hoses ,any info will be greatly received.
Thanks Daryle

I personally would not recommend putting a body lift in a full size truck, even though they make them, they cause many things to come out of alignment over time as it is just too much weight for those kits to handle.
You should look into a leveling kit instead Daystar makes good kits and it will be cheaper and easier to install.
Hope this helps
