Ok they should fit if you do a lift to your truck. The center caps will work but look kinda funny having a hole in the front center caps where the 4 wheel drive hub sticks out of the center cap. You should be able to use your stock center caps or order two for the rear to put on the front wheels.

You might be able to get away with just a 3 inch body lift. Even though your truck is 2wd I don't recommend a body lift. You may want to check with Fab-Tech Suspension I believe they make a leveling kit or a 4 inch suspension lift for 2wd superduty's. They are not that hard to put in being your truck is 2wd so there is less work involved.

Ok my fault, check superlift part number SUPK582 as it states for gas and standard diesel engines. 4 inch lift, as for your towing abilities shouldn't have much affect on your towing of loads. I prefer Super Lift over Fab Tech. But I know Fab Tech has alot of 2wd LIft kits. Plus the Superlift is better on price and from my experince better quality too.

The reason why I don't recommend body lifts. I don't recommend them because they increase the center of gravity. I know so does a suspension lift. But when you do a body lift you are putting a block between the body and the frame, a suspension lift you are raising the whole truck as one unit. In my opinion as well as alot of others, a suspension lift is alot more stable then a body lift. Also have you ever really seen the blocks they use for a body lift. I don't know about you, but there is no way I would be riding around in a truck that has the cab spaced from the frame by a flimsy piece of polyureathane. I have seen body lift blocks crack, shatter, and just break of the shock they get when driving especially in the cold weather like I get here in Michigan. Now when I was younger and didn't know any better. I was making body lifts out of Hockey Pucks. But that ain't to smart neither. After the lessons learned and years of experince I just recommend staying away from a body lift when all possible. Besides that you have to make a custom bracket to raise the back bumper back up to look right.
