Will a MP3/CD Player from a 2009 Ranger fit in a 2006 Ranger?

Have a chance to replace my single CD player in my 2006 ranger with a single CD Player that came out of a 2009 Ranger that also plays MP3's. Ad says it will fit in an '07, '08 or '09. Will it fit in my '06?

There was wiring differences in the 04-06s however I dont know if the radio harness was affected (i highly doubt they touched that). But I just put my 07 MP3/CD/Aux in my moms 05 Mariner with no problems.

Got it in the mail and it fits perfect. Harness matches and it only took me about five minutes. The hardest part was disconnecting and connecting the battery and resetting the clock. I'm thrilled, now I can play my MP3s on CD. Sound quality is good enough for an old guy. Thanks for all the replys. This is a great forum.
I did notice a button on the new radio called AUX. I pushed it and a text came up that said LINE IN. I supposed this is for an MP3 player. Any thoughts on how to hook this up.

You need the aux harness and aux input out of any 09+ Ranger
