2003 front end conversion question???

I have a 99 ranger and would like to do the 2003 front swap. I am only doing the lights for now, when I get the extra cash I will do the bumper.

My question is: When I look up parts through my wharehouse dealer called Veng USA. It lists that the header panel for the 98-00 trucks also fit the 01-05 trucks made at the Pacheco Plant. Does that mean that My header panel would work, OR would I have to buy the other header panel???

Here is a copy of how they list it:

part# 258921 - 1
Headlamp Mounting Panel, 98-00 Also Fits 01-05 Vehicles Made At The Pacheco Plant

part# 258921 - 2
Headlamp Mounting Panel, For Vehicles Made At The Edison And Twin Cities Plants 11th Digit Of Vin Is P or T

The second one is $40 more expensive. I am lost on this swap because of this. Would I be able to use my header panel, OR buy a new one. If a new one is needed, Which one do I buy??????


This is the look that I am looking for:

Do I have to get the hood and the bumper also? I wasn't planning on it. I thought you didn't have to get them.
