4 inch to a 6inch

been brainstorming for projects to change my truck around , thinking about getting rid of the 4 inch and install a six inch lift with springs all the way around.

all the kits i look at dont show anything for brake lines, are the stock brakelines still long enough even with 6 inches ?

'04 6.0, 4.5" lift, straight piped, SCT tunes by Innovative Diesel, studded, coolant filter, EGR delete Tru track in the rear, sounds by JL audio some other odds and ends

I used to have a 4 inch pro comp lift on my truck that came with brake line drop brackets, then switched to a pro comp 6.5 inch and it did not come with anything for the brake lines, I just kept the brackets on there and then kinda bent them a little more and bent the bottoms of them and they seem to have plenty of slack in them now.

2004 F-350 cc/lb lariat. Pro comp 6.5 lift with 37/13.50/17 Toyo m/t on pro comp 6089. Mbrp straight with airaid intake and Bullydog Triple Dog and IDP FICM mild tune

New short block at 72k
As of now it has 103k
