2000 Front End to a 2001+

What does it take? How easy is it?
To convert the front of my truck 2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4x4 3.0L Stepside to the front of a 2001+?

Does it just bolt on?

What do you guys think?

Just seems that the aftermarket for those yeas are better for the front end! I like how those 01+ years all have the options for different headlight and corner lights instead of just clear stockers! Also the billet grill looks better too in my opinion because it will have a color matched outline on the bottom of the grill and headlights!

Anyways help me out has anyone else on here done that before, or is it a dumb idea? Otherwise I guess I will need to buy a 4X2 grill and cut that one up to fit the billet grill, because the 4X4 grill would look hacked up if I use that one!

Yeah everything bolts on, you need a 01 header panel, grille and lights. You can get a edge bumper, valance and hood if you want to go full with the conversion but its not necessary.

2000 to 2001 Front End Conversion

I am currently doing the same conversion you want to do with your Ranger front end. Check out LMC's Ford Ranger Catalog. They have every part you will need with detail drawings of how it all fits together
