Swap 2003 Explorer base plate to 2008 Explorer
Has anyone tried to use a base plate from a 2002-2005 Ford Explorer on a 2006-2010 Ford Explorer? I have a Blue Ox #2160 base plate that I removed from my 2003 Explorer and I want to use in on a 2008 Explorer. Blue Ox lists a different part #2198 for the 2008 and I was wondering if anyone knows exactly what the difference is. The vehicles look about the same but I have not removed the bumper yet to take a look. There may be only minor differences that I could have my local welding shop do to make the swap.
