I have never installed one, but I would think that a body lift with a Cummins truck shouldn't be much different that any other power plant.

Ah...... The only "ice pipes" I found online were the kind you don't want to get caught with by a cop!!
If you don't go terrible crazy with a lift kit the i.c. pipes should be able to be made to fit. They won't be perfect, but they should work with a little "finessing". Otherwise you would need to fabricate new I.C pipes, radiator hoses, A/C lines, fuel filler, etc. I would think that you would be farther ahead to do a suspension lift to get the looks you want plus you won't have to fill in the places between the body and bumpers.

That's where a suspension lift would be a better choice, but they sure aren't cheap. The least expensive I found was just over $700. https://www.google.com/search?q=dodg...utf-8&oe=utf-8

I don't want the lIft for the amount of lift,I have the money to go out and buy an 8 inch lift if I wanted. The reason I want the body lift is for the extra space in the engine bay.
