Body Lift on a 94 PSD?

Are there any companies out there that make body lifts for the OBS powerstrokes? I will NEVER offroad mine, and am only looking to be able to tuck 35s. Every company I look at specifically says "Will not work with diesel engine equipped vehicles". Any ideas?

Do a body lift or get some fender flares and start cutting to make room for some larger tires.

"Are there any companies out there that make body lifts for the OBS powerstrokes?"

I can't read sometimes

Well how about this lift?

4 in. Suspension System with Superide Shocks

I can find individual bushings and spacers but no actual body lift kits.

I don't see why a diesel body lift would differ from gas, other than the battery cables.

I'll get the thread moved also.

thanks i appreciate it. The only things i could think of is maybe some electrical going into the cab, or clearance issues around the radiator? Someone must know!


Really not looking for a suspension lift. 1000$ for a truck thats never going to get wheeled.... just want to get a little tougher stance for my tow rig.... Heck, probably 2000$ and i could have my rockwells under something scary!

I don't know what the engine compartment looks like on your truck but on my 05 it would cause many problems now that I think about it. #1 is the intake would loose some valuable space in an already tight fit.

I have a 3" on mine.

You have to cut the fan shourd to fit and you have to bend the 4x4 shifter.

But other than that, they will fit

The intercooler plays a large part in the lack of one, as it is mounted to the core support/body so it would have to move up as well. You would have have to have new piping for it.
