93- atleast 04. i have heard some of the newer ones have more bolts. any 6' will work. fleetside or stepside. if you change to a stepside, you will need a fuel filler neck and the rear bumper as well. if you get one from a 01+, you will need to use your stock tails. the newer models only have two lights, where as your 95 will have 3 (tail, turn, backup)

If you get a 01+ you can do the 3 bulb to 2 bulb conversion http://www.fordrangerforum.com/exter...lb-set-up.html<--CLICK

93-2010 will work Even the though the newer ones have more bolts the ones you need will line up.

I knew I found the right forum! I have a 99 and found a 93 bed for $150 (including the tailgate) and just needed to verify that not only would the bolts line up but also the body lines.

Thanks,
Bob

Just put a 98 bed on my 95. Got the bed, practically brand new except the lovely artwork the junk yard sprays on it, a mint Ford Factory over rail bedliner and a like new left front fender for 175 bucks. Installed the bed last night and its a perfect fit. Thanks again for the help!!!

Hey Clinton,

That is exactly how I got the bed. I posted a wanted ad on CL and within an hour I had two hits. One was 2 hours away (200 for just the bed) the other 20 minutes (bed, bed liner and fender for 175). LOVE craigs list...just gotta be careful these days; never know wht kinda nutz are out there.

Wilkes Barre / Scranton Area. You nearby? I'd be interested to hear how your undercoat job went...you do it yourself?

Sweet man, Yeah I'm in Tobyhanna, just outside MT Pocono. I go to Wilkes barre/Scranton alot only like 30 mins away. I did do the undercoat myself, took a while but it's worth it. My best suggestion is using the rust and paint stripping pads with a grinder, Wire wheel takes a long time and the stripping pads on a drill works but is a little slower
