PA 3" BodyLift For 98-00...installed on my 01

Performance Accessories 3 inch bodylift for 98-00 trucks and being put on my 01 ranger......the kit fit perfectly on my truck had no problems at all....being that i had a rollpan and a stepside bed the filler neck is different in the 98-00 kit and the rear bumper brackets will not fit an 01 plus truck either but i have a rollpan and a stepside bed so i didnt have to install either of those...i highely reccommend this kit to anyone that wants to save 100 or so bucks......hit me up with questions if ya need to i will be happy to answer them!

Thanks for the info. I think my PS of your truck came out pretty close! Made it a little too high, but not too much.

those brackets are the same ones i had in my PA kit.....those look the same as on other year rangers..........i know a hitch would work on any Ranger '93+ is the same.....so i dont see why the bumper brackets would be different!

those are close but not exactly the same. the 01-03 kit ones are rounded on the smaller end, but nothing a grinder wouldnt fix.

i have a 99 w/ the PA 3" body lift and i the brackets dont go in bc of the curve of the bumper, i was going to grind them down to put them on but found holes on the bumper to bolt tow hooks to... so i didnt lift it, unless somoene has first hand experience of the strength of the brackets...
reguardless. does anyone else have that issue?

I used those brackets on my 2000.
I didnt have to do anything to them to put them on and they came with my body lift....But they were a PITA to put on.

I dont see why the 01 BL would be different from the 98-00.
I mean basically everything is the same on the 01 as far as body and cab bolts, and the radiator, right?!
