Hi, I guess this may be a Bump???
It seems that no one has an idea or opinion to share or help a newbie with a completely stock rig, on what I can do for my 1994? What is the most common for or maybe absolutely a "Must" for a 7.3L truck.
If there is such a thing as Must?
Anyway, with lots of reading, and just guess work, since I have no where to turn but the forum (where no answers - huh
I am going to start with opening the airways. I am going to replace the cold air intake. Already ordered it, just need to find time to install it now.
I would like to attempt to get better fuel economy to start with. I am not a "Hot Rodder", so major
performance to put HP and Torque to the ground is not really what I am after, but if I do need to pass the occasional vehicle in my way, that ability wouldn't hurt!
Anyway, I now want to change out my stock steel wheels that have a "Fancy" cover to ones that are slightly bigger. I have an opportunity to get a great deal from someone who is getting rid of their rig that has some nice wheels & tires.
I think that I will not have the clearance for them so, I have been looking to find a moderate "Lift Kit" to accommodate the larger wheel. I can't find anything that will work on any of the sites. Each time I put in more & more details about the rig, the large list of kits, quickly disappears from which to choose. And a couple sites, like Summit Racing, gave me (at the end of the detail process) 2 choices for "Body" lift. Then when reading the install details - I find:
"Will not fit trucks with Diesel
So, I am asking again hoping to find an answer: What is available for this truck to lift it moderately at 2-3 inches. I know after looking at lots of pics of some real beauty's on the ORG - that this is possible? What have you guys used? I presume that since there is no "Cookie cutter kit w/easy install and go type kit - some modification may be needed? And is there a difference of "Importance or Preference" of a lift kit - body vs. suspension?
I am new to all of this and am trying to learn as I go. The other truck in my sig, was that way when I bought it, except for gauges, which I installed.
So, thanks again and will appreciate all feedback!
