1998 ranger up grade?

i have been wanting to do it for a while but not sure if ir will work . i have a 1998 ford ranger 4.0 4x4 and i was wondering if i got the grill off of a 2008 ranger or even like a 2001 would it fit. and also would the front bumper from a 08 fit? im thinking i could make the bumper bolt up or weld on some how but just dont know about the curve of it or if would match the body of a 98

yea you can but you have to buy the header panel, lights, grill and bumper and maybe more. basically you have to swap the enitre front of the truck for it to work.
