Ranger Trailhead Edition Spindle, Same as Edge?

I had a catastrophic bearing failure on the way home tonight. The bearings on the front left spindle failed which allowed the spindle to pull through and then bent into a pretzel. So I will have to get a replacement spindle for it tomorrow and was wondering if anyone knew which spindle I should look for? It's a 2000 Ford Ranger Trailhead Edition. They only made it the one year and it has the torsion beam suspension on a 2wd truck. It's a factory 3" lift. Does anyone know if it's the same spindle as the 2001-2005 Ranger Edge? Also, is there anything special I should know about changing out the spindle (knuckle) on this truck? Any/all help is greatly appreciated!

I wanna say if its lifted 3" over stock 2wd w/ Tbars it's similar to a edge's suspension with different markings.

I'm curious to see these trailhead logos.

Maybe it's a regional thing. I've never seen one around here.

The trailhead is not regional. My dad got his in Illinois and I've seen one here in Arizona. They were just a limited run and not every dealer got one. I have to assume an answer was found on this issue.

Yea, because this topic was from 2013. It was definitely covered. But thanks for bringing up a dead horse.
