Direct Replace with Moogs?

When Im lifting the truck im planning on replacing the ball joints to save the inevitable failure of my stock ball joints. Are the moog ball joints just a direct replacement of the stock ones. I thought I read somewhere that when you put the Moog joints in you also have replace a bunch of other parts with moog parts. Sorry my question is kinda vague.

Straight up swap...... but ain't your's a really low mile '08 or something? You don't even need to think about BJ's until like 70,000 miles.

First of I gotta say...Fx4Wannabe you are the sh*t.. always so fast to reply haha.

But ya Im not to familiar with the life of Ball joints. Just from my reading on the boards iv understood that they wear out fast, I just didnt know how fast. Ill be running 33x12.5's and probably around 1.5" of torsion crank, and being that I have a 2wd I most likely have F bars which means there soft and are gonna sag and Ill have to crank again. Figured it would be alot of stress on the joints.

If I dont need them then thats great. More saved money = more money for other mods (locker)
