factory cd/mp3 upgrade

I've got a 98 xlt and I am wondering what year factory unit will fit in the dash. I like the 6 cd/mp3 player that is in the newer rangers.

all will "fit" you will just have to figure out the wiring situation. the harnesses are different for 01+ i believe.
why not a aftermarket receiver? much more features and usually more power..around the same price range, usually.
the factory speakers in my 05 ranger sounded much better after installing an aftermarket receiver.
this was due to the additional power output of the new deck.

if your going for a factory look these are a nice alternative..
