Default frame issues

Ok I'm new to this stuff so here goes. I need some information about frame interchangeability. I have(had) a 2005 xlt 4x4 with the 4.0L engine and a manual 5 speed transmission which my son wrecked by hitting an embankment and bending up the frame. Does anybody know what frames are interchangeable with the 2005 126 inch wheel base that I have?

Any 1998 and newer Ranger frame will work as long as the wheelbase is the same.
