Default Factory Radio Swap

I got a base 2003 ranger recently and all it had was an am fm radio and i wanted to swap it out with a factory radio cd player from a different ranger and i was wondering if i can swap the two with eachother.

it shouldnt be an issue since the Ranger used the same template of radio (with some mild variations) for almost 20 years lol... what year radio are you going to swap it with?
