Eh not really. I pulled up therangerstation.com and got the instructions in the tech library. It had some pretty helpful pics. But the summit instructions aren't terrible

okay thanks. what made you decide to go with the summit over the PA? I mean $100 cheaper is one reason but why does the PA cost so much more? just like name brand versus generic or something?

I'd use the PA instructions. They are avaliable online as a PDF download. The instructions in the Simmit kit are just like the PA kit, but minus all the pics that are in the PA instructions. All the disclaimers are the exact same.


I'm 100% positive that the Summit brand kit is manufactured by PA. Summit brand filters are K&N filters for example.

me and my friend that helped me do it were pretty sure its the EXACT same thing as the PA kit. just rebadged by summit and sold for cheaper. like someone said, they do the same for K&N air filters. the summit K&N's cost like half of what the normal ones do lol

i really don't notice it.

sure its a little slower. but nothing to complain about at all.

and its not like its a race car.

but after i put the 33's on, i put on the 91 torque tune, for a bit more low end grunt. that probably made up for it a bit lol

oh and as far as the tires go, they rubbed on the pass. side at full flex a bit. just need to have the inside of the fenders rolled and it won't be a problem.
