2" lift - does this need extended brake lines?

Looking at an OME kit for my '11 Taco. Looking to limit lift to 2", and after reading a bagillion threads today, still have no clear answer to this question.

If I add 2 inches of lift, will I need to extend the brake lines?

Some deets:

stock, 4wd, reg cab, 4 cyl, 5 spd, cupholders and Barcelona red (because you never know what people will ask for when you post... )

Thanks gang.

4, of course... given it's a regular cab. I thought about adding 2 more, but felt it would be overkill for my use case...

Well with only 4 cup holders you may need extended brake lines.
Mine has 5 cup holders + 8 bottle holders so it was fine with stock brake lines on a full 3" lift front & rear.
