Default Swapping trans on a 93 Ranger

I just would like to have some help figuring out if this would work. this is the situation:
i have a 93 Ford Ranger 4x4 4.0L manual transmisson that has gone bad. i found a 91 Explorer 4x4 that is a manual trans.

What i would like to know, will the tranny off the explorer fit my ranger?

they have the same motor and are both M.T.

if someone could let me know what i need to find out more about it or what i might run along as a problem while swapping out the tranny..

any input is very welcomed and much needed.

thanks for reading!

This should work as long as they are the same motor and are both manual trans. I just had to replace the one in my 2wd 93. The one from the expo should bolt right up to the motor if it is the same trans. Shouldn't have to much trouble with it as long as you take it slow and make sure that its done right.
