Not quite..the problem is that the TF frame is wider 
than that on the earlier trucks. The Pacer upper control 
arm attaching points can't clear the frame without 
cutting a chunk out of the frame. But once the IFS is in 
place, these cut-out pieces can be replaced, and 
everything is cool. 

If working with a bare frame, another approach is to 
remove the crossmembers and pinch the frame together - 
then the IFS can be installed easily, no cutting 
required. Once in place, there is plenty of room; it's 
just getting it there that presents a problem.

The track of the Pacer IFS is correct for the TF trucks, 
though. Hope this helps,
