6.0 IC in an OBS with RSK

I've heard it will work. I've heard it won't work. Looking to find out for sure which answer is the correct one.

Should work, depends on how you mount your intercooler.

RSK= Reverse Shackle Kit, it's a way to lift the front end of a 4x4 and improve the ride, especially with Superduty front springs. Check out Sky Manufacturing or Offroad Unlimited.

This is an RSK:



It changes all the suspension mounting for the front end and lifts the truck some. That piece of pipe between the front 2 hangers causes issues with getting the larger 6.0 intercooler installed.

It all depends on how low the IC is installed. I have the Banks IC and just had to move it to drill bolt holes, then move it back. I've got the Sky 3" RSK and the top of the bar is about even with the bottom of the frame rail, giving me about 3" between the IC and the bar. So if the 6.0 IC is even with the bottom of the frame or higher, it should be okay.

Bill the 6.0 cooler is quite a bit larger than the 7.3L cooler... let me know if this pic doesn't show up:



6.0 IC on the left, 7.3 stock IC on the right.

Yeah, I've been reading up on it. As long as the IC is even with the bottom of the frame rail you will be okay.
