Application Segment Overview

In the Application segment, you provide information on vehicle fitments. Applications can be configured on multiple levels.

Applications are defined in the following order :
  1. Year Make Model
  2. Sub configurations (Engine, Transmission, Bed Length, etc.)
  3. Qualifier (ID-based)
  4. Notes (free text)
Any application explicitly included will implicitly exclude all others. For example; if a product has an application of  "2005 Ford Mustang GT" models, the selection of the sub-model "GT" excludes all other sub-models. If a product has applications in ALL sub-models, then NO selection is necessary.
