    are they required in the process of adding a lift 0-3" or a good upgrade?

    prob a good idea but not required. i have plenty of length in the front, but the rears are stretched pretty tight at full flex.

    the are not REQUIRED for anything 3" or under but i would definitely without a doubt add them anyway for multiple reasons. first of all, get braided stainless lines and your braking will be less "mushy" cause the lines wont bulge. not a big deal but kind of cool. secondly, if you are doing any offroading, when you flex if your lines are too short they can brake lose, losing all pressure. you would probably be safe not changing them, but if you are on a 20 to 30 degree incline on the side of a mountain do you really wanna find out your factory lines are too short? they are easy to put on and relatively cheap ($50-$60) compared to other lift components. my opinion is not to go cheap or cut corners when you and your truck are involved

    yeah, there is less play in the rear lines. i replaced those but as of now i only have a 2.5 on the front and the lines are pretty long so i didn't replace them. i will in the future when i upgrade my front suspension again

    ok, so you're actually putting some money into your suspension. if you're already spending some cash you might as well spring for the lines. at least for the back. but personally i'd get them for front and back. you're already under the truck getting dirty, you might as well do it all at once
