So it doesn't matter if they are 2wd or 4x4?

You really should just pm Josh about it and ask him.
But I dont think it will work for a 2wd....the front is different...I could be wrong...but just pm and ask him

The frames are the same...so I don't see why it wouldn't. The only thing I could see that would be different would be that you would have to drill two more holes and with the provided hardware its pretty easy

That cover wouldn't have done much anyways. The skid mounts in place of that cover so it should fit without a problem. He has a couple for sale ads on here. Read through them

----------

According to his f/s thread hes not sure about coil sprung trucks. So I wouldn't buy one unless you have torsion bars

Me too. That's why I need one. Please post his response here if you don't mind.
