Default Frame Help, 97 vs. 02?

Can anyone tell if there are any changes differences in the frame on the Rangers frames between the 97 model and the 02???
TIA

Default Re: Frame Help, 97 vs. 02?

yes, quite a bit. front suspension is completely different. 97 has beams, 98+ has control arms/torsion bars.

if it's a reg cab frame, the 98+ will be approx 3" longer wheel base. ext cab should be same wheel base, but again completely different front suspension.

frame horns are different, and i'm sure there is probably more.
