    From what I am gathering there is a headlamp extension bracket included in the -2 series.

    It would also account for the extra $40 in cost. Here is the links to both so you can see for yourself. Hope this helps. FYI, if for some chance you are gathering this stuff used or already have the other kit, you can oubviously buy the brackets seperatly if it so the case.

    Good Luck!

    -1 could not work with dodges that had the laramie package, they had more trouble with the newer 06' fitting to tight to the mount
    -2 works with the laramie package and everything else

    Ahhh, so the off set light brackets just make it so you can open your hood on those certain Dodges that the headgear is too close to the hood.

    Ok I think I got it now. It looks like 7170-1 works on everything 2003 2004 2005 add some 2006.
    7170-2 works on most all 2006? And maybe previous. This is going on an 05 so I hope Im all set.

    I do believe you are right. I noticed they constructed the outside lips a bit different too. I bet your about that. Good Luck.

    -2 hangs just a tiny bit lower to clear the larime's bumper. they figures it was worth a tiny bit to drop rather than have the customer cut the plastic valance of his 45K+ dodge. if you dont have a larime -1 will work on everything. if you have a larime you either have to deform your bumper/valance or cut it. -2 you dont have to touch it.
