    I have an 84 k-5 that i already put a body lift on, and a 75 k-10 which is getting one next week. My friend has an 83 jimmy with the 6.2 diesel. Can she put a body lift on it, or will it require extensive modifications?

    as far as i can tell, your friends jimmy will be just like your K5. shouldn't be any different.

    Don't quote me on that, have yet to see a K5 diesel up close, so I don't know how the intercooler is setup.

    I would assume that it'll be the same as any other k5.

    since when do NA 6.2's have intercoolers? I thought an intercooler was for turbo'd engines?

    I know the body lift that I got last week stated that it would not work on a diesel but it did not say why.
