Door fitment

Getting ready to replace a passenger front door for a 2006 supercab, with power accessories, (Still need to find a nice rust free one) I'm guessing that there isn't any difference between the regular cab and the super cab door (please correct me if I'm wrong) what model years are compatible?
Second question is about the interior stuff, power widows and locks, is it just a matter of keeping my old interior panel and reconnecting the wiring or is there a difference between the power and manual window mechanism? Will it be more or less plug and play, or a bit more complicated? Guessing again that the mechanisms are similar other than the motor. Appreciate the help!

The only help I can give, on the electrical, you will have to unplug the wiring from all the switches, window motor, mirror, speaker and lock activator from your current door and feed them out the hole in the door, then do the reverse when installing new door.

There is no "master" plug for the door.

A manual window/lock to power window/lock conversion can be done, just a lot of work, you'll have to switch EVERYTHING inside the door..

Thanks, that's kind of what I expected with the wiring. I think my main concern is with the power window. If I can find a good used manual crank door, will I be able to work with what's there to convert it to power?
I guess my real question is this:
If I remove the motor from the old door (power) can it then be installed onto the new (manual crank) door without any other modifications? Is the glass is the same, the regulator etc.

I am showing 1995 to 2005 using same door skin, 2006 to 2011 uses different skin

Doors would fit but must have been a "line change" on the outside???

Yes, no difference between manual or power doors, you would need to drill out the rivets on both doors and then transfer the power window parts over to new door and either put in new rivets or short nuts and bolts with LOCTITE
The holes should all be there

Thanks! Been searching for days, tried so many search options! Where did find this?

Also good to know that it won't be too big of a deal with the window conversion.

would have been much easier to replace just the lower skin but the door bottom is completely shot as well so nothing to attach it to.

Just look on ebay for Ranger doors it will list "fits 2006-2011" or "fits 1995-2005"

I also like to look at LMC Truck
This page: Truck Parts and Truck Accessories

Shows whole Door 1993/4 and then 1995-2005, but nothing for 2006-2011

But down below it shows lower door skin as fits 1993-2011, so not real sure on the difference

Thats the info that I've most often come up with so I guessed that they were all the same, glad I asked!

I know of one difference between the 05 and older, and the 06 and newer, there might be other differences.

So still one question is unanswered, can I use a door from a regular cab on a supercab?

Yes, they used the same size front doors on regular cab and extended cab, 1998 and up, 2 door or 4 door

And there was a difference between 2005 and 2006, they changed the mirror style and they are not swappable, 2005 and earlier mirrors don't fit on 2006 and up doors, and visa versa, so heads up
The doors themselves are the same and will work, you would just have two different types of mirrors if you only swapped 1 door

Thanks RonD, knew about the mirror thanks to 2011Supercab, good tutorial on swapping mirrors there! Glad to know my door search is not limited to just supercab.
Just picked up some new tires and rims, the seller had a 2019 Ranger in the driveway, looked real sharp!
