01 TO 03 use different grills and header panels and hoods as the 04+, If you want an 04+ front end you need a new header panel, grill, hood, lights, turn signal lights and all the little needs of bolts and stuff to get it all together. (should come with the body parts but trying to get the head light holder or the clips to hold them in can be a tough task.) I am pretty sure a 98+ fenders will work with the 01+ front end and the way the turn signals are but I'm not 100% sure. IMO go with the 01-03 front end and get the powerdome hood. But if you like the 06+ grills the 04-05 are the same setup as the 06+ I have an 04 Ranger and swapped out for the one piece grill. But I kinda want to get a powerdome and swap to a 01-03 front end but its something that I am pondering.
Looking for another Ranger for the GF
