Will these radius arms work?

I have a 2013 F-250 CCSB with a Pro Comp 6 inch lift and I just ordered Fabtech's 6"-8" Radius Arm Box (FTS22139) on Amazon. The website confirmed that it would fit my vehicle, but I'm looking for more assurance before it's to late to cancel. I kind of ordered on impulse and I don't know much about suspension. Can anyone help me out? Much appreciated...

If they don't fit and the seller said they would, then they would take them back I'd imagine. Lift kit parts is one thing I wouldn't buy from amazon though, go thru truck Toyz and then you can't go wrong. Prices won't be any higher and customer support will be there.

Can I ask why the switch? Seems like a lot to spend for nothing gained..

I don't see why it wouldn't fit but like JetJock said: What is the point since you already have those items on your truck from ProComp?

Trying to match your traction bars ?

I don't see why it wouldn't work if the Procomps use the OEM mounting

you will still want to verify alignment again when done

Yep. I always disliked the Pro Comp logo'd radius arms and after getting these traction bars, I felt the need for change. Also, aren't these Fabtech arms 6"-8" adjustable? I could definitely see myself moving up to 7-8 inches of lift in the future if I decide to get wider wheels or bigger tires.

I ordered from Amazon because they were being sold for under $1,090 with free shipping. I saw them being sold for $1,300-$1,500 everywhere else. The seller is CustomPartsDepot.....Sounds alright? I better call to make sure though.

I think the Pro Comp arms still use the factory mounts. I snapped some photos to see what y'all think..

should work and looks like if you go higher at a later date you just use a radius arm drop bracket
