Flatfender (CJ3b) 2 1/2\" lift?

Hi,
I purchased a Superlift 2 1/2" lift for my '58 CJ3b, I was wondering if anyone else had lifted their flatty with stock axles/drivetrain, and if they had any issues resulting from it (i.e. driveshaft angle, brake lines) Any tips etc are apprecitated.

Also, I was thinking about getting a set of 32x9.5 Mud tires for it. I think the 2 1/2" lift should clear that.

I have done 2.5" lifts on flatties, early CJ5's and CJ7's and have always had to replace the brakelines with longer ones. The flatties and CJ5's also had the driveshafts pretty well extended, like to the point where any flex would separate the halves.
