Default exterior/interior door compatibility

Hey guys, heres the situation. I have a 2010 ford ranger sport without the power equipment group ( windows, locks, mirrors, cruise control, steering wheel adjustment ) I want to buy doors from an autowrecker and can't find which years of door would work for compatibility ( same colour, size etc. ) my truck is redfire metallic. are there any other years that had the same colour or should i just steal the guts and the panels?

THANK YOU FOR HELPING ME!!!

this is my first truck and wanna spruce it up a bit = ]

Gut it man, trying to match colors from a new truck to a junk yard is 1 in a million. Just take the door components and modify your doors

good luck matching the red fire metallic, the colour isnt the most commonj for rangers and if you do find one, it might not match the wear of the rest of your truck (sun fade, clearcoat wear, etc) gut it and go from there. I believe they used the same door panels from 1998 to present day (IIRC)

be sure to get doors from a 06-up, the switch inserts are different and as for the interior door, you can put almost any door paneling in, If I were you, especially since your ride is newer, than gut it as others have said, and than you can still have oem, i myself did it the opposite way all donor parts, if you can find another year 06 and up, than just swap out the engine and dash harness and WALLA, oem style and no splicing, it's what I did.
