Oh of course. Rounds and rounds of Bates.

I can't believe how cheap the Summit kit is compared to the PA or Superlift BL.

I'll put them on today, I had to finish painting my front ones I'm pretty positive they work but I will get back to you on that either today or tomorrow.. As trent said they will work, I'll take his word for it lol..

you dont need to worry about the shifter extension since yours is an automatic.

that should work fine.

well, i would imagine they would work.
the mazda bumpers should mount the same way as the ranger bumpers do. i was able to use the bumper brackets that came with the 98-00 kit on my 07 with no problems.

if you can take your bumper off and snap pics that would help determine it. but im 99% sure they're the same.
