the PA body lift that people order on 4wp is listed on the site for 98-00 but if you look on PA's website it is the exact same kit for 01-03....i bet it would fit, give PA a call

I'm not sure if they are the same or not, but I looked on PA's site and they show two different part numbers for the actual lift.

98-00 is #883

01-03 is #70033

i dont think it will work.

if it did why would they make another kit? i mean the bumpers are different and all kinds of other stuff, why risk it, just buy the right kit.

Maybe different bumper-brackets and small things from 01-03 vs. 98 & up?? Im sure the Major part of the kit is the same, but u may have to get new bumper brackets, and other small things that are included wih the kit.

How can people put edge bumpers on 98-00's with no problem at all? Hmmm. The brackets will then have to be the same.

I don't know why they haven't made it the same kit, but I have seen people get the 98-00 kit and be just fine. I might have gotten an 98-00 kit, I don't remember anymore.
