I was off today so I trolled the junkyards looking for gold. I found a 95 ranger XL model (2wd) with a nice class III hitch on it. I can get a good price on it. Will it fit my 2001 Ranger 4x4? I looked at it good, looks like everything matches, except slightly different side brackets for the bumper. Otherwise it looks like it will fit fine.
I got one for a 93-97 and i had to weld some extra metal on the edges and widen the holes and i also had to cut off the 3rd set of holes that face the front of the truck but all in all it fit i think it depends on brand!
