Default Explorer OHC

I've been reading a lot of posts about the Explorer OHC and I am wanting to install one in my std. cab ranger.
One thing I'm not sure about though...
All of the installs I've seen have been in the newer body style rangers.
What I'm wondering is if one will mate up well with the contour of the headliner in a 1993?
Not having any decent yards in my area to pull one to check is a problem, so I have to ask. Would hate to purchase one and ship it here just to find it won't fit well.
Thanks everyone for any info or advice.

If you hold your mouse over " ohc " It defines it.

I have only seen a few OHC in older trucks.

I started to install one in my 89 ranger. It was gonna be a little more work, but would have looked legit in the end.

Thanks STL,
I can grab one for $50 shipped, includes bracket, temp sensor and harness.
Is that about the normal price wise?

Thanks! I'll see if I can get him down to that. If not, I'll look elsewhere.
Thanks for the heads up.

I have one in my 89 ranger, the only problem is it has a gap in the back.
