'97 XLT Front End & Rim (options)

Got a new used truck and I hate the way the stock front looks. Just wondering what are my options as far as changing the look. The grill and bumper mostly are fugly. Also as far as rims go what can swap over to the ranger and what is the max I can run with a stock ride height? Thanks Ford guys.

front end options include either a chrome grill, or a painted grill...............as far as your wheels, any Ranger, Explorer will fit......if you are too concerned with the type of wheel, then get a set of aftermarket with the 5x4.5 bolt pattern and 3.75" backspacing...

You could get a billet grill, pre-runner style bumper (jamesduff.com), and maybe a set of headlights and corners off of ebay. I'm just waiting for someone to put a gen 5 front on a 93-97 to see if I like it or not.
