Icon7 Front skid plate off Explorer?

Hi guys,

Just wondering if a front skid plate off an explorer would fit on my 07 Ranger?

If so, what year should I get it off the Explorer?

Thanks

you don't want a factory ford skid for the front.. unless its 100% for looks.

to be honest with you, it would be more for looks than anything, I don't really go off-road a lot. And also, I know some guys that work at the junkyard here and I could get it probably for cheap, if it would fit from an explorer?

wait for more than an hour to bump it, everyones coming home from work about now..

go look at one at the JY, then look at your truck and see if it'll work, thats the best way.
