    It's my understanding that the only difference between the kits is the quantities of bolts, pucks, etc. If you have enough pucks and the right bolts/washers/nuts, I'd think it would work.

    With a 2" lift kit, you won't get everything that is pictured in the pic. The parts in a 2" lift is just the pucks, bolts/washers/nuts and the shifter extention. They use a generic pic for all the ads. What is actually pictured is more than likely a 3" lift kit.


    Other than that, what Burblover holds true /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    1st Gens use a total of 12 "pucks" to complete the lift. 10 for the body, and 2 for the radiator support.

    The bolts lengths and sizing has been documented on this forum previously, so you can probably do better by buying a "basic" set of pucks and then locating the hardware yourself. The odds of the kit having all the right bolt sizes and lengths for a 1st Gen are pretty small anyway.

    (Just remember to add 2" to all the bolt lengths when you find the listing. The measurements are for a stock truck!) /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
