Reese or Curt are both good brands... You could try a junk yard but you never know if you're going to have to deal with stuck bolts and stuff...

Yep Class III is sufficient... The same model year/generation should fit the same truck however if you were to get a hitch from a 89 Ranger and try to put it on a 2003 Ranger you would have to do some modifications (I think)...

Yeah, there was a frame widening at some point but I don't remember when. I would think anything from a 98+ Ranger would fit. I would also recommend a hitch with a 2" receiver, just about anything with that size tube would be at least class III.
