    I just found a trailmaster 3 inch body lift and i was wondering if i put it on what are some of the other things that i would have to change (brake lines etc...) and how much would these things cost

    Going to need brackets to lift you bumpers also if you want them to match the body. If you brake lines are coiled near the master cylinder, they should be long enough. Probably need to cut to bottom of you fan shroud to clear the fan. May need to change upper radiator hose. May need to extend or alter shifter linkages.
    BTW, fill out you profile so we know what you are working on.
