Default will 99body parts fit a 97?

Hello all, I'm new to the forum and am looking for info. I just bought a 97 ranger. Every panel on th truck is dentd or damaged in some way. I found a 99 with good sheet metal. I know the 99 is a newer body style but will it bolt up to the 97?
Thanks

i'm not really sure if it will or not i dont think it will b/c the cab is a few inches bigger in the 99 than the 97.... but maybe someone else will chime in that knows more than i do...

If its anything on the front end, you need to do a whole new front end clip I believe. From the doors to the back should be the same. If you can get the 99 cheap, swap front end clips and swap everything you can.

the fenders will physically bolt on, but they wont have the little piece that goes under the side marker. Best bet is to just swap the front end over.
