    That's exactly what i have on my 08.. It might take a little homework and research but if you could find a kit and see where the holes are... If they don't match up you might be able to take them to a machine shop and have a new set of holes drilled out(for the front spacer) and you might be able to do the same with a generic "add-a-leaf" Slight modifications is all...

    Cool suspension lift kits

    Ive never seen a lift for your year and 2wd truck. Your truck has front coil springs and leafs in the rear. The newer trucks (07,08,09s) have front coil springs,but the are mounted on a strut assembly. These will not work with just a machined adapter. If you put larger coil springs up front you wont be able to aline the front. If you look at other year 2wd kits that are on the market they include a new upper arm which is longer so you can aline the front. I checked with all my sources and they know of no kit for your truck either. Ill keep checking and if i fined one I will post.

    You'd have to call em though. When you click on one it says. "We are currently updating vehicle applications" and to call em.

    Thanks a lot for all the replies. I don't really do any heavy 4 wheeling but some of the places I camp I could use a few more inches.
