    Ive never heard of anyone being asked for there engine type when buying a body lift, only year and make of truck. There cant be a difference, but then I could be wrong.

    well the problem is that there are two kits available for the vehicle but both say (exc diesel) I would imagine that it should be the same. I just need to know if anyone out there has a body lift installed in their diesel. I mean the kit for a 3 inch lift is 80bucks, and if i was to go suspension its more like 400 bucks. I use this thing for the streat mostly and my suspension was rebuilt last year. that is why i am interested in the body lift to make room for larger tires.

    I cant think of any reasons it should make any diffrence. I installed a Warn black diamond kit on mine and had no problems.
    Pics of the install:
