You will need:

A 4.0 engine. If you have a manual transmission you will need a manual t-case. You will need FX4 stickers. Bilstein shocks. The stiffest leafs and #1 torsion bars. Fog lights if you don't already have them. The J style chrome tow hooks. The 31-spline 8.8 from an FX4 Level II with 10 inch drums and the Torsen limited slip and 4.10s front and rear. Also all black interior and FX4 seats with the shorty center console.

The Torsen is a company name of the limited slip differential that is in FX4 Level IIs and other vehicles like 98-02 Camaros. If you don't know what limited slip is google it.

If you need more references just look for a 03 FX4 Level II in the picture galleries of R/F.
If you need more info just
