Year? Engine? Drive train?

Your only problems may be the need to extend the shifter and steering columns. Depending in your engine you may need to extend the rad hoses and cut your fan shroud.

Need to know to tell you for sure.

watch your grounds i just put a 2 inch in my 97 5 spd 318. 4x4 only had to watch the tail light and motor grounds there short and you need about 3 inches to install the pucks other then that i didnt even change a thing. your shifters are a little bit lower but thats no big deal they hit the dash in 3rd and 5th anyway.

I have a 1" BL on my truck. Just count the number of mounts you have and order the pucks from Summit. Go to your local hardware and pick up some 1" longer bolts. For the stock bumper I just got longer bolts and stuck a 1" piece of square tubing between them to compensate. You can see the puck in this pic.
