All Rangers except the 1983 and 1984 can use either the DIN style receiver or the shaft style receiver.
The 1983-1984 Rangers only accept the shaft style receiver.
Years ending in ‘S’ denotes super cab. All others are regular cab.
Shaft Style Receivers- have two knobs on either side of the receiver and fit a 3-hole opening. The center hole is rectangular and the outside holes are round for the shafts.
DIN Style Receivers- fit through a single rectangular hole in the dash. Din Style units mount from the front, sliding into a metal sleeve that attaches to the factory radio’s side support system.
