Any 98+ frame will work. Must be from the same type of Ranger though.
Single Cab short bed (or Longbed if you have it)
I don't think Explorers came in single cab short bed.
It's all about wheelbase. I would say for year 98-03 would be for sure compatible. 04+ will have the same frame mounts and stuff but some little stuff might be different like wiring routing and junk like that.
