Default Door Panel Question.

Will 01 and up Ranger door panels,

fit instead of my current door panels?

Looks like everything would match up, just want to make sure.

I'd be willing to bet that it will swap with no problem

Direct swap. Except you'll need to remove the "L" bracket(what your single panel screw screws into). And possibly drill new holes in the door sheet metal because your mounting screws get relocated.

I think STL did the swap. I know he'll chime in. Hell, he's probably got a how-to posted here for it. I'll take a peek.
EDIT: Nope. Not here. But I swear he's one of the one's who's done the swap for some reason.

I suggest looking for 03+ panels if you've got the dark grey or tan interior. It's got carpeting above your elbow pad. And some of them have a black armrest and others have the normal interior color(tan or grey).

Ya easy swap Like Shane said remove L bracket and you will need to get the little retainer deals off the donor truck. For the grab handle to screw into

Here are the part numbers for the retainers and screws. Ford finally came through

Retainer F2UZ-1523762-A $11.99 a piece
Screw (Pack of 4) 56907-S424 $1.75

What you have now

Other door panel has the hole for the retainer is there though
