Default 6" lift Questions

Hey I have been putting a little away for a while now and spent hours surfing the net looking for the right lift and tires. It is about time i finally order them but i would really like some questions answered and love some advice. I'm am going to go with the skyjacker 6" lift with 4.5" rear blocks. I will be getting 35" all-terain tires w/ 17" rims. I was wondering what modifications i would need to get this done. So far i have been told re-index the transfer case, re-gear the differential, and reprogram the spedo.

Anything else i should know about? I would truly appreciate any advice you can give.

If the kit is complete with drop brackets for your steering components, that's pretty much it except possibly having to rotate the front and rear differentials to get the right pinion angle. If they do the transfer case as you mentioned, you may be OK and won't have to do that.

Good luck with the lift!

You might have to move or replace trackbar. Don't forget an alignment job. Also make sure the kit comes with swaybar links.
