in various thicknesses. Common situation, not a biggy. Only gotcha to watch out for is that the new tile floor and the extended ring, are in the same plane. If this isn't a new floor, and you had a toilet there before, you are probably okay. If a new floor, you may or may not need shims. Almost forgot- if you have to use the extra-long closet bolts, test-fit them and cut to length before you assemble it all. DAMHIKT. (and why didn't Santa bring me a die grinder and cutoff wheels?)

A cordless Dremmel tool with a cutoff wheel goes through closet bolts like butter. ;-) It's great for splitting the nuts when pulling the bowl too.
