Ok I have an 03 ranger 4 door 6ft bed I recently was is a bad wreck and looking to try to fix it. Would a body and front end from a 95 model work? Or next question how much would it take to swap my 4.0 sohc into the 95.

My credo
Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
It looks like you have both trucks already, so I would grab a soft tape and pull some measurements to see if things on both trucks match. If everything measures out to be the same, then things should swap over. I would measure distance between bumper brackets, length of fender front to back, distance between front wheels, & stuff like that. As Far as swapping motors, the 4.0 should fit but you need the transmission too, and the wiring harness.

If you're buying, I'd keep looking. Not much common between them beyond the frame. It can be done. But won't be easy.
