I think you need at least a 1.5" spacer

All Superduty wheels have the same bolt pattern and stuff but the 99-04 years need spacers to fit the newer wheels.

You can that 06 wheel on your 01 without any problems at all, its just gonna have alil different offset due to the fact of having the coil springs up front.

I can't remember where I seen the post but they recommend using steel spacers. I would suggest getting a 2" spacer though that way you don't have to trim your studs.
