What model years will the rear hatch interchange for a 1999 Ford Explorer Sport
The 99 falls within the generation covered by 95 to 2001. I suspect a near, maybe two either way would work.
To make sure, there are many sites which sell hatches. Visit one and select a year. If the notation doesn't indicate which models the gate will fit, jot down the part number and compare it to other models.
