You should not encounter any problems. All you have to buy is the shifter extension and install it. Just follow the directions and you should be ok.

some cutting of the floor bezel might be needed if manual trans. search...tons of "body lift help!" threads around. Even if you don't have the same year as the thread, ALL the info is revelant to your truck.

T55 for the stock bed bolts. 18 or 19mm hex for the cab bolts. Believe T35 or T40 or T37 for the rear cab jumpseats?
