I've got one.. Same thing as the performance acessories kit, just cheaper piece and summits name on it. It'll fit on your year and model truck as well.

I got a 98-00 summit lift on my 05

Only thing we had to modify was the fuel filler 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
[/B]






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[/B]

I installed the Summit kit on my truck and also had the wrong filler tubes with it and also had to modify my rear bumper brackets but when we got the kit for Tiffany's truck we went with the more expensive kit and had no issues at all and it even came with 2 sizes of filler neck tubes so I corrected mine as well.

The PA body lift bumper brackets can be purchased direct from PA for 14.99 a piece. They will ship for free to a body shop. I did that when I was rear ended.

so do you think it would be worth it to just go ahead and order PA brackets so its easier or just enlarge the summit brackets holes

IMO would be easier to order the brackets.

We tore the piss out of my drill press and drill making the holes larger.

Got a hose that went over the stock one instead of into it. When pumping gas I could only let the nosel pray half or it would click off
