    What will I have to change if I get a 2.5 lift? driveshafts,transfercase drop, pinion angle.
    or will I have to change anything? also does anybody have
    a k-5 with a 4" lift and 33's? if so do you have pics so I can see what it will look like if I happen to go with 4"
    Thanks in advance

    Mine is only lifted 2 1/2 inches and I am running 33x12.50s. The only thing I did was drop my t-case, dont know if you really have to or not but I did it anyways.
    But if you ask for my opinion, go with the 4 inch lift. My 33s rub like mad front and back. :)

    I ran 33x12.50 on a 2 1/2in lift and my tires rubbed. I now run 33x12.50 and a 4in lift and my tires rub. Of course now I have a sway bar disconnect. But they still rub.

    Here's a pic of my truck with a 2 1/2 in lift and 33's

    As far as changing anything, I dropped my transfer case and got extended brake lines cause I stretched them with just the 2 1/2 in lift.
    With the 4 in lift you'll just need to get a raised steering arm as well the brake lines and drop the t-case.
