Default Engine Swap

Hey I have a 2004 Ranger with a bad motor a moron smoked it after having it 3 months. now I got it back with a rod knock. I can buy a 2001 motor for a resonable price, will this swap work? they are both 2.3 Rangers. I am already throwing good money after bad. So I am trying to get something out of the truck.

Still don't understand why they did that, perhaps trying to use up the 2.5's?
