Default Updating device to new rom

Hey guys. I have a custom rom running on 4.3 can I flash a 4.4 rom over it or do I need to do some kind kind of reset or preparation? Thanks!

Best advice is to backup any apps and data you want with something like titanium backup, then boot to recovery and make a nandroid backup, then wipe clean then flash ROM of choice. Then if there is anything you wish to restore from previous ROM use titanium, or however you backed things up. Note not everything likes to restore between android versions but most will be fine from 4.3 to 4.4
