Default lift a 2wd quad?

I have an idea to lift my 01 quad cab? This is the thing I have a 01 quad 2wd 5 spd. Now what I want to do is a level kit and then do a two in body lift. Now what I want to know is will I have issues with breake lines to frame, fuel lines, ground straps. I'm also worried about front bumper? Do they sell new mounts? Back bumper isn't issue going for roll pan also will 35's fit. Any other issues I need to know.

Shouldn't have any issues with brake lines or fuel lines, but I've never seen a 2 inch body lift for a 01 dodge ram, I could be wrong. Most are 3 inches. Unless you plan on running different uca's, I would not go any higher than a 2 inch leveling kit. You can buy brackets for the bumpers. I don't see you running 35's, but that also depends on what size wheels you're going to run and what type of offset. I have a 00 2wd with a 6.5 fabtech lift. I recently ran a 16x10 wheel(-38 offset) with 35's and no tread. They rubbed like crazy. Now I'm running a 20x12(-44 offset) with 33's and no rubbing. There's a huge difference between 35's and 33's. You may be able to run 35's with no offset on the wheels.
