2008 crew cab short bed lift help

So i am looking in to lifting the truck just a smidge so that i can put 35" tires on comfortably. I know that they will probably fit without rubbing on my stock setup. I have looked into the 2.5" leveling kits and have heard good things and bad about them. I have also looked into the 2.5" front and 2" rear lifts. Anyhow what I am trying to get at is if i lift the truck 2 or so inches what all gets out of whack and has to be adjusted for.



I know i probably need traction/ladder bars

track bar re-locator

caster adjustment?

as well the correct backspacing/offset for the tires so they don't rub or stick out too far.



Anything else that i am missing.

This is going to be expensive!
