Actually it's 1983 to 1997. The actual ranger was introduced in 1982 as a 1983 model. It's listed in your LMC Truck catalog under history and what changes were made on the page that tells you how to use their catalog. he should've been more specific about what he has and what he wants and what have you. You know, info like is it a 2X4 or 4X4, 4 or 6 cylinder etc.

Those kits are horrible (for the 83-97' swaps).

Custom ordering parts that actually fit and work together are way better.
