Shouldn't matter if you are looking into getting a body lift kit. The diameter of the bolts are close enough to being the same, but I would be they are the same. The length is what you need to be concerned with, plus the thread pitch. With a kit you don't have to worry about that.

The 3in BL for first gens dont have bumper brackets, so you will have to fab them yourself, as far as the bolt threads i have no clue.
