Any 98+ frame will work. Must be from the same type of Ranger though.

V6
4x4
Single Cab short bed (or Longbed if you have it)

explorer frames will not work. i did mine a year and a half ago. look in JY you can often buy the whole truck for short money and actually sell some parts and get some money back. i know you can order them from ford but for an arm and a leg.

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.
