Default Frame differences

How different are the frames from 95 ranger and a 04 ranger. I am more concerened with the front frame rails where a snowplow would bolt on. Are they the same width? basic same shape?



Thanks, Brad

Arrow Re: Frame differences

Same wideth, as you can put a newer/older front clip on either one, just have to change the radiator support. Front bumper brackets are "totally" different, and the 98 up are steerin rack, as the 97 back are steerin boxes.

Main difference is that the 97 back are 1 piece frame & the 98 up are a modular (2 piece) type............
