Is there any difference?

Between these 3 body lift kits, I am confused why one is 50 bucks cheaper than the other.

A couple things to make the installation just right....

steering extention, fuel filler neck extention, radiator drop dealies, bumper brackets....

and it appears that boths kits are complete.....it could be a HUGE possibility that the summit kit is made by performance accesories....alot of the summit brand parts, are made by the name brand company, but cheaper and under the summit name.

Yea thats what I was kind of thinking, that PA made that kit as well. I just dont get why its so drastically cheaper. Also, the 2 pictures of the kits look different, like there almost different parts from one another.

We installed a summit body lift kit on my roommates ranger. We used the 98-00 model kit for his 03 Ranger. The ONLY difference between it and the PA 2001 up kit we put on my truck was the filler neck extension, which we didn't even have to use. The summit one is a good kit and cheaper as well, but if we wouldn't have had my PA kits instructions laying around we'd have been done for. The Summit kits instructions are worthless!!

Yea if I get the summit kit then i will probably download the pa instructions. But if there is no other big difference between the kits, then I think I will get the summit one.
