Default 2005 Ranger XLT Frame Swap

I have a 2005 Ranger XLT Extended cab that got a little friendly with a roadside banking. the Bed, Cab and everything on the body is fine but the drive shaft came off and ripped the rear end off the truck which bent the frame all up. I'mm looking to do a frame swap on it but what frames can i use? do I have to use a 2005 Frame or is say a 2001 frame usable?

Ya any ext cab frame from 1998-2010 will work. Only difference would be if yours is 2wd and the other is 4wd
