Default BUGFLECTOR II wont work?. Hood fitment??????

ay guys i was cruzin around today and was killin time and i went into my local autoparts store and saw these bug deflectors ON SALE. This is a mod/part i prolly woulda never thought of gettin but its pretty cheap.. Ok the problem: I Have an 03' ranger w/ a powerdome hood. these are the ones they had left that i thought would work w/ my hood.. the guy there told me the 04+ would not work w/ my 03... Is there a reason, or should i jus go buy it and bolt it on and it'll be fine???

04+ won't work on 01-03 4x4/edge because the front of the hood is totally different. 04+ hoods have a notch in the front of them for the taller grille.

No Explorer one would work either....just 01-03 4x4/edge.



Here's a pic to show what I'm talking about...

No Explorer one would work either....just 01-03 4x4/edge will fit. Expo hoods have more curvature on the front side.

They got the same brand on eBay for $39.99 plus $20 shipping

it has a "best offer" maybe you could offer them $20 dollars
