The drive doesn't matter. I'm pretty sure the bodylift has to be for a 98+. Also don't forget the bumper brackets are a tiny bit different I think.

EDIT: Just looked at PA's site. 98-00 have a separate bodylift than 01-06. I'm certain the lift blocks are the same I just think the bumper brackets are different.

ya rear brackets are the same from 86-08 and front is 98-08

98 kit will work on a newer truck i think there is 1 drop bracket that might be missing might be the other way around i think its 98 that has two side frame grounds

04+ the fuel vent hose extension is the wrong size, nothing a trip to any AP store or Lowe's will fix though.
