they work on diesels. Our OBS trucks arent any different than a gasser minus the motor. only issue might be our more wires that might not stretch but lots of guys run body lifts. you have a 350?? just do a mini pack in the front and a 2 inch block in the back

i have 3 inches of lift on mine and its just right. you will sit higher than me cause i was starting as a 250. but look up mini leaf packs on ebay or something. I bet the body lift has something to do with the fan shroud. it would mess with an intercooler if you had one. Idk i can see why it would be bad
