alot of summit items are re-stickered items...


Either returns, blems, or just things they bought in bulk and can sell cheaper to the consumer.


But yes, a Summit bodylift has EVERYTHING that the PA 98-00 kit has, so save some money and get that instead

Why is the newer style ranger kits more money when they haven't changed crap on the trucks except grills. Would an older kit work on my 06?

i used an 00 kit on my 01

the gas filler neck extensions were different diameter, but we made it work, everything else worked out ok.


THe rear bumper brackets were different as well, but they still worked

On summit the 98-00 kit is $100 cheaper than the 01-present kit. Could a '00 kit work on the newer? What would be different?

I have a stepside and my filler neck was just fine without a extension just used a lil longer screws to pull it up and removed the zip tie that holds the ground to the neck!
