I am with Zach. Stuff like this you buy what is for your truck, don't skimp out and have to buy more parts later.

Umm unless he is making it for a 3 in bodylifted truck that bumper is going to sit at the same spot it would on a regular truck. I sure hope you planned accordingly.

It snot that its a different brand because if you go to PA's website, they list different numbers.

I'm sure something might be different. It'll come up. Good Luck.

I'm looking to order a Kit too, but is there any logical reason that they have to seperate, yet Identical kits? Simply because they are diff. Generations? Newer=More expensive then? Also, I'm assuming so, but I have a Mazda trans in my '02 FX4? I'm sure I do, but want to make sure by the knowledgable people here! :)

All manuals are mazda tranny's. I don't know why they are the same kit but different numbers and different prices. Since the 00' kit is working for the newer rangers go for it and save $50.
