Pa body lift 70073 will redesigned to fit 01-10

just got my kit in the mail from jegs the instuctions read ford ranger/mazda b-series 2001-2010 there are now 2 extra lift blocks for the 2010's with the extra bed bolts it came with 2 different sized filler neck extinsions as well ill post up somepics when i get home from school in a few hours

should be a total 6 blocks for the bed,4 for the cab and 2 for the front end=12 blocks right?
kit has 14 blocks

sorry if i look like a dumb *** and this is old news

oh and from what ive seen they have made the bumper brackets more beefy

edit:i feel like a newb i forgot the kits come with 2 extra blocks but the instructions do say 01-10 so idk

It is sorta old news.... all 98-05 kits(previous to the new 2010 extention) all came with 14 blocks and bolts. This is to cover the long bed trucks that have 8 bed bolts instead of the normal 6 found on shortbeds. They've always came with two different filler neck sizes and two different vent tube sizes. This isn't news. But unfortunately, I think there's still gonna be the same things for different model years. like the two sizes of vents that come in the 01-05 kit do not fit a 08 model truck(at least the one I lifted)

What is news though, is that PA updated the years and has it wrong and effed up on r&d. Is there any asterisk or anything in the instructions regarding 2009+ models? Far as I know, all '09+ shortbeds have 10 bed bolts and the longbeds still have 8. They (PA) may have decided that 6 or 8 bolts is plenty for the 09+ trucks. But to me, it seems like that's a gross oversight on their part. Having two holes in the bed where bolts used to be. Seems cheap and unfinished.

Please post some pics and measurements of thickness on those brackets. I doubt they upgraded 'em.








#70073 isn't a part number listed in Performance Accessories catalog. And the highest up they go, at least on their website is the #70033 kit listed as 01-06.
