body lift?

ok, so my brother in law was cleaning out his storage building and came across a 3" body lift he had bought for his 96 f250 way back when. will it work on my 95 psd? his was a 351w. i don't have a 5th wheel or gooseneck to worry about. i would think it would fit and allow me a little extra space between the dp and firewall to clear a 3" dp. what do you think? i hope it will work, because it is free if i want it.

yeah, no intercooler as of yet. i don't tow too much right now since i sold my gooseneck, but i do plan on doing an intercooler and putting a hitch in the bed at some npoint in the future. is the intercooler the only thing that would limit me? will the steering extension and everything else still work right?

yep just the intercooler because the tubes are ridged and dont allow the movement needed to lift the body unless you have some custom made

traded it for an 06 dodge sorry

Yeap, I have one on my 1997 Power Stroke.

You have to CUT the lower half of the Fan Shroud up or off, and you have to rebend the 4x4 shifter, but other than that, it fits fine
