Hi guys, so I have a 2009 ranger fx4 and I want to use the SSBC rear drum to disk conversion kit but they say it goes to 2005. When I called and asked the guy said “well we only know it goes to 2005, it may work on a 2009”. Has anyone put one of these kits on their 2009? Or does anyone know if the 2005 is the same brake set up as the 2009? Flanges, etc. Any help is appreciated!

2003 to 2009 Rangers show same rear brake parts so it should work fine

Sometimes when a company produces a part they will list what it currently fits and never update the fitment guide.

In this case they probably made the product in 2005 so at that time they listed the part as fitting up to that model year. Even though it will fit up to 2009 they had no way to know that in 2005...
