1995 Ranger Trailer hitch on a 2001

Hey all,

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.

Anyone know for sure?

Thanks all,

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!

Ok, Mission Accomplished! Got it on, wasn't too hard either. Did it myself in less than an hour. Looks good on there.
May come in handy next camping trip.

Thanks again all for your quick replies and knowledge.
