Re: pre/post 97 compatibility

Suspension parts should be fine, but bumpers may not.

One way to look at a part and determine if it will fit across the years is to look at what the manufacturer says it will fit. I am guessing that you are looking at swapping across a number of aftermarket upgrades. The application charts for each part will be far more accurate than a rule of thumb.

I do not know of any compatibility chart, post a list of parts in question, and somebody will provide answers.

Lift kit parts, steering parts, and rims will fit any year. Stock bumpers can be modified to fit, most aftermarket bumpers should fit all years.

That all sounds great it's basically lift, steering and. Custom bumpers as well as rims/tires.
