Default Box swap compatibility - 2003 <->2010

Hi,
I am looking to replace the entire box on my 2003 Ranger XLT extended cab. I have found a 2010 box off of an extended cab which appears to have the same dimensions. Will I run into any major troubles putting the 2010 box onto my 2003 truck?
The search on this forum seems to suggest I will be ok, but wanted to reach out before making the purchase. Any feedback would be appreciated.

The 2010 will have more bed bolt holes but you'll be ok

Thanks for the quick response... any idea if there will be any issues with the tail lights or tail gate from my 2003 fitting on the 2010? The 2010 box I am looking at has neither of these.
