Powerdome hood question-01 vs 05?

I'm looking at getting a clear Lund Interceptor bugshield for my 05 FX4. I found one online for 01-03 Ranger with the Powerdome hood with Lund part #18197. Lund lists a different part number for my 05 hood, which is the same as the 01-03-right? Did Ford make any changes between these years?

You have to get a 04+ bugshield. Here's a comparison from 01-03 vs 04+....notice how the 04+ is notched for the grille....

the 2005 dome isn't as high as the 2001 either......not that that matters for the deflector.

Cranked bars on both trucks. Both trucks running 32x11.50r15 BFG M/Ts. Truck on left has 1" body lift. Truck on right is stock. No rub on either truck. We have a ton of threads regarding fitting 32x11.50s......just crank them bars and they'll fit with no rub.

Did you loose any MPG by going to the taller tires? I was thinking about adding some 265/75/16 or even 285/75/16 to drop my crusing RPM down some. I'm turning 2500 RPM at 70 with the factory 4:10's.

When I went with 32s my mileage didn't change at all. I can still get 20mpg with my 32s and 4.10s

I can get nearly 22 MPG when traveling 55 MPH on my route to work (country roads/almost no stop signs). However, when I drive it on the interstate-70-75 MPH, it drops to 19-19.5 MPG because it's running at 2500 RPM.

The front is lower than the back stock. You can get a chevy drop shackle or a add-a-leaf if you want to lift the rear.

No need to lift the rear....it's already got like a 2" rake. Just crank the front and your good to go. Both trucks rears are stock......stock K rated leafs and stock 2" block.
