    these shocks will bolt in to stock shock points no need for a rear cage. they look awsome, i'm thinking about getting a pair myself

    your probably gonna want to run them with a new rear spring like a deaver 8 leaf pack or at least the icon 3 leaf add pack. running them with stock leaves could damage the shock when your hitting the dirt

    You'll have to excuse my ignorance, but how would the stock leafs cause damage to the shock??

    no need for a bed cage, i don't know about the first gens but the second gen has a stem top instead of an eyelet, call offroad warehouse and ask them if they will fit your lift, i know they sell fox's for the 2nd gen but they are for stock height, they don't sell anything for a lifted rear.
