you're not running a rear bumper so the rear bumper brackets dont matter, and since you have a flareside, its been said that you dont have to extend the fuel filler neck



Im running a 98-00 body lift on mine, got it for around 100bucks
elaborate if you will....

Hes saying the body and frame are the same. You have a roll pan so no need for rear bumper brackets and I guess you can make the front ones work. I don't know whats different there?

I ordered a summit body lift last week for around a $100, and they sent me the performance accessories one. I don't know if they did that by mistake but I'm not complaining.

When I called PA about the price difference they said there were differences in the bumper mounting, we know the front is no difference but the rear may be. The filler neck extension is a different size and there may be some other little stuff but should not affect you too much. Just call PA and ask them, they were pretty cool guys when I called.

if you need the filler neck get the right size. it sucks big time when it isnt the right size and you have to fight it. but i have heard some people not need to extend the filler neck on a flareside. i had mine cut before i even tried it to see if i really needed it.

I didn't have to extend mine on my 2005 XLT 4x4, and I do not have the flareside.
