Interchangeable parts for different years?

My 1999 mountaineer (V8, AWD) broken into a few weeks ago and area around the radio, the trim bezel with the knobs was taken along with other things in the car.

Im looking for the parts to replace it the radio trim bezel. Its not going so well.

My question is what year of vehicle is interchangeable for parts with my 1999?

I saw a 1998 that look fairly familar on ebay but I dont want to buy the item unless I know for sure.

Thanks for the help in advance!

1995 to 2001 are all the same. Just make sure the trim piece for around the radio as frm AWD or 2wd. Otherwise you will have the switch for the transfer.

The only small change was the seat belt latch. It changed in '98.

I may have one for sale, I'll let you know tomorrow after I make sure it's in good shape. It's from a 2000 awd mountaineer.

Thanks

After I read the second post I went on eBay and found one that was in acceptable shape with the right knobs for $25 plus $7 shipping.

I think I am still missing the metal case that holds the radio in though any ideas?
