you need the fenders hood and radiator support. i looked into it...you can mod the current rad support and fenders to take the newer nose . i dont know how but i have seen it done...
The 2005 front end fits on a 99. I have a 99 step side and I bought the 2005 hood headlights markers fenders bumper grill grill insert and hood latch and it all fit in mine just fine I can show pics tomorrow if you want

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!:icon_confused:
How about window glass? my 94 needs a drivers window

Radiator interchange.

I've got a '89 BII and I need to replace the rad in it. In the future, I would like to put in a 4.0 OHV. IIRC, the radiators are mostly interchangeable between 1989-1994. I know the autos had oil coolers built in.
Can anybody confirm my foggy memory?

Just picked up and 89 ford ranger. was wondering if you can use some parts off an 95 ford explorer like the steering gear box or bearings . Basically wonder if some parts are interchangeable or is it just from the bronco to ranger.
Thanks

Doing things wrong, until I get it right.
FYI: 97 Lincoln Continental rims do NOT fit a 2001 Ranger Edge. So use this knowledge at you discretion.

In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are different.

I won’t make a guarantee. But the steering box should be ok to swap.

Wheel bearings and seals are cheap. Don’t waste your time swapping those from truck to truck. Buy new.

I will make a guarantee... the steering from a 95 Explorer will not fit an 89 Ranger without MAJOR work. 94 was the last year the Explorer had TTB.

So the steering gearbox changed, too? I haven’t looked at it myself. But I thought they continued using the gearbox for a while. Makes perfect sense that the linkage would have changed.

Edit. I just looked on Rock Auto. That Explorer has rack and pinion. It’s ALL TOTALLY DIFFERENT.

Yup... first year of the SLA IFS and rack and pinion steering.
First year of the rear disc brakes.
Last year of only 1 engine option.
It was a whole new truck.
