It's really kind of a personal choice. How much of the things you may need do you need? If your truck is running fine and you would rather do the lift and tires than misc. work then go ahead and do it.

just like small things like a cab light a middle console because i have a bench seat maybe a CB just stuff like that. well i do like the lifted look but it is 2wd with a 4cyl so im kinda apprehensive to lift it because i will have no power at all once i lift it with 31's you know?

you could re-gear the rear end to make up for the power loss and get it back to stock
