mine is a 2001, and the donor rangers are a 01 and a 02, I know its a direct swap, I'm just trying to see if any members here has ever done it, If I had to pay for everything i would pass it up and just buy a 4x4 ranger, but it's free and got lots of help to do it this coming meet or sooner.

Okay I was just curious. I know if you got a 04-05 you are limited to what years you can use with out a lot of frustration.

Nah don't think so, The only thing would be if you were keeping torsion bars or doing a complete coil over swap, one of the rangers was already done as a coil over, so im good to go.

If you have ever wished you had 4x4 then I say do it.. but if you won't ever use it then don't waste your time.

well after talking with John aka (WVCAT) I was told I would need the entire frame as their are things that are welded on, If I had a edge than the swap would be much easier, So I will pass for now until I get a complete frame complete 4x4
