Its me again.
I am getting ready to do the conversion on my truck. And I want yall to know that I couldn't find ANYTHING locally in the pick and pay yards. It seems like either the 04+ trucks are either indestructible, or they just seem to completely avoid being sent to the yards...lol.
With that said, Ive not been able to find any used parts. So Im taking the more expensive route.
Im going to buy all new parts.
Ive got a good website(Auto Parts Fast at RockAuto
) and Ive got all parts(excluding paint) priced at 219.30, except for the corner lights, in which I plan on ordering off of ebay.
So the reason I am posting again is this:
Before I go and fork over 300$, i just want to check and make sure that there will be no hidden costs? Will it be a straight bolt on? Will I need any other parts?
Here Is What Ive Got Ordered:
2004 Ford Ranger Header Panel
2004 Ford Ranger Headlight Assembly
2004 Ford Ranger Hood
2004 Ford Ranger Grill(argent bar;Black)
2004 Ford Ranger Hood Latch Assembly.
Corner lights off of ebay
Im sorry Ive posted so much on this topic, its just like this.
I want to be sure that I have all the parts I need.
Will I need anything else?
Like headlight retaining clips?
Will I be able to use parts off of the 98(Bolts, clips, etc.)
I have been saving 75% of my income for the last 3 years. Ive worked my butt off...lol...Im getting ready to take on a 72 hr/wkly job, and will be saving 75% of that income.
Im trying to raise capital for my business...and im just plain tight.
I don't want to tie up a god awful amount in this truck.
I will soon be replacing the heater core/blend door, and starter.
