Default Ranger pickup box replacement

I have a 2000 Ranger 3.0L 4wd step side box. I want to replace it with a full size box. I think it's an easy enough task to do, but I was curious if anyone had any pointers or suggestions for me before I start. Also, I'm curious what other model years I can look for that would work. (Ex. if a 2001 box would work and look decent on a 2000 frame and cab) Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate it.

Anything from 1998-2006 would work 2006 and up they used less bolt to hold the bed down.

check www.car-part.com search all salvage yards in your state.

I am also looking at changing out my box...my driverside rear quarter panel is serverly dented!! I have a 2006 ranger sport...so in my case I would need a box from another 06 ranger? or could I use a earlier years box?

Thanks

any box 93+ will fit. they added 4 more bolts in the bed sometime around 06. but i think the other six still line up.

also, if switching from stepside to fleetside, you'll need to swap the fuel filler neck and the rear bumper. the filler neck will need to come from a similar year as whatever you have.
