Default 2005 Edge 3in body lift questions????

I have recently been lookin into a 3in body lift for my truck and have been getting prices. It seems like the lifts for the late 90's and early 2000's are cheaper. My truck is a 2005 edge and i was wondering if the older model lift is any different than the new model lift because the pictures look exactly the same........PLEASE HELP

if you get the 98 and up body lift its the same. but you will need to get the shifter extension since you have a manual tranny.

The extension is only 30 bucks an is needed no matter why but as long as the lifts are the same from 98 and up then I should be able to save some cash.....

I have a 98-2000 lift on my 2005 Ranger

You will need to modify the fuel filler neck. The one in the kit will be to small.

Some people choose to use the summit lift for a 98-2000 ranger on the newer trucks it will work but may require some modding of the rear bumper brackets and then a different fuel neck.

Here is what we came up with on my 05 for the fuel neck. We cut the hose in half then went to lowes and got a 4.5" long pipe threaded on both ends. it is 1" in diameter. Cost like 2 dollars







Now when on the truck we pushed it all the way till it was touching the stock metal part that comes down and then put the hose clamp right at the edge of the pipe. There is still at least 1.5" after the hose clam on the tank side
