You can use a standard F-150 2wd one just fine. Your tires may rub at full lock. I've heard the Lightning arms are bent in a little more to clear the tires. I can tell you my stock wheel/tire combo rubs on the radius arms at full lock on my '92 F-150, on my '94 Lightning they do not rub.

Well im not worried about a lil bit of rubbing because there is already rub marks on the stock one even with the stock size tires that are on it now. thank you for responding so quickly also i was just worried about using a standard one as they show different part numbers at the dealers between the two.
