no it is not. the bronco 2 frame is several inches shorter. the wheelbase is also different. the shortest wheelbase of a ranger was 102 inches , whereas the bronco 2 rode on a 92 inch wheelbase , a ranger can be put on a b2 frame , but it requires serious fabrication of the bed , and a b2 body will not fit on a ranger frame.


yes it is, you can use all the way to the 1990 model


no they are different , i am a member of , and the information there say that they are different , 1985 Ranger , Shortest Wheelbase = 107.9 in . Bronco II Wheelbase , All Years = 94.0 in . they are different , unless you extend the frame or bob the bed
