Default interchangable parts list

i think we should have a list of know parts the interchang between different years and generations such as fenders,cabs,doors,engine parts,computers, and so on

what got me thinking about this is i was wondering what it takes to put a 98+ front clip on a 93-97 ranger

Just search for it. The question has be asked way more times than I can remember.
Though it's pretty simple, If it looks the same, it'll probably fit.
But one thing most don't know is all the body mounts are in the same places on all of em. Meaning, a 2010 body will bolt up to a 83 chassis.

Just search it. It's all there.

Thumbs up Ok..........

I have built 2 gen 3's (93 & 94) and am workin on 2 more (94 & 95), so I will tell what I have found within these builds, but if you need to know other info, I have the ability to check via Ford catalogin at work:

93-97 fenders, hood, front bumper, grill, headlights, marker lights are a direct swap.
93-94 radiator supports are same and 95-97 are same (2 different PN's)
93-97 doors interchange
93 to 08 beds are direct bolt ons and taillights are interchangeable
92-02 Explorer rearends are direct bolt-in if you want 4" of drop in the rear, if don't want the drop, then you have to weld on new leaf spring perches
92-02 Explorer seats will bolt right in after you swap the Ranger tracks to them, the Explorer seats have the holes made into them for the tracks
93-97 cabs are interchangeable, as are 98 up
82-97 steerin boxes are interchangeable to include the MS boxes
82-94 heater boxes interchange, as does 95-97

I'm sure I'll think of more, but that's all I can think of for now!
