Lift questions!!!!

I have a 2wd 99 f350 dually diesel and found a 6in lift off of a 2wd 01 f250 v10 truck, would his lift fit mine? I know when you order a lift they ask if your truck is diesel or gas so I didnt know if it wouldn't bolt up or what? Please let me know some answers, I know it makes no sense for lifting a 2wd truck but I don't plan on going off road I'm just doing it so my semi wheels will look good on the truck, thanks for any input

Not sure of an exact answer, although the 7.3 is around 1100lbs vs the V10@640lbs (from what I've researched). The diesel being that much heavier would put a lot of strain on that gasser lift and probably make it sag like crazy...or break
