Explore to Ranger bumper swap?

I did a search, but all the threads talk around my question. Will a 1996 explorer (2 door) bumper fit on a 1998 Ranger 4x4? I know the back one is too wide, as I have a stepside. Also, any other parts that I can salvage and keep, ie rims, rear end????

i got explorer rims on my tuck, the axle you could use you would just have to flip the spring perches to above the axle to use on rangers
