On an 89 style Ranger the factory size is 12mmX100mm. and 1 inch is roughly 25mm to 26mm. Maybe someone else can chime in and verify if its the same size or not.

Please create a signature.... Can't tell in your pic what year your truck is....


But when I used to sell 1" BL block kits for 98+ trucks, I included 100, 110, 130, and 150 length bolts. All were, I believe, M12x1.50 threads.

I suggest finding and downloading the 3" bodylift instructions and take a look at the parts list. Remove 2" (aka approx 50mm), and find your bolts.

I also suggest contacting Performance Accessories and ordering a set of their bed washers. They're 1/4" thick and perfect sized. Finding that at your locak hardware store is very hard to do, and standard washers tend to be too weak and start to bend the bedfloor when torqued properly. Found that out the hard way.


Just be aware, almost all who install the 1" kit, up it to the 3". Including myself.
