Default 95 f-150 body lift question

I got a 95 f150 and i am planning on putting a body lift on it to fit a little bit bigger tires on it to get around the swamp. it has the 5 speed manual in it and i was thinking the other day that if i lift the body the hydralic line to the clutch slave cylinder wont be long enough and its not going to bend because its the dumb hard plastic line so if i buy a body lift will it come with that or do i need to cut the line and extend it with a rubber line or what do i need to do. any advice would be appreciated.

The clutch line will be fine.

The transmission shifter and 4x4 shifter may need some modifications.

thank you yeah my dad had a ford he put a 2 inch body lift on and he said he had to modify the shifter a little bit but i was just curious because the clutch line is the hard plastic and so its not going to flex well so i was just curoius

i belive if you disconect one of the brackets that holds it close to the body, it should give you enough flex for your body lift. but like jeeperz said transmission shifter and 4x4 shifter may need some work. good luck, show us some pics when your done.
