Edited: Joes Progress/Damage to his truck thread.

I just received the 03 header panel. I expect to get the modded 03 headlights/corners today or tomorrow as well as for the 03 Edge style grille!

I'm going to be removing the bumper, as I'm going to have one fabricated for me semi-locally within the next couple of weeks.

I'm just not sure if I'll get the bumper before I get the fenders painted... Oh! And I'm going to do the 07 Taillight modification.

My question is, I've got the 98 hood, and do plan on eventually investing in the Powerdome hood. Will my hood work for the time being?

sweet.
your hood will work, it just isnt going to line up with the grille right.
and your bumper will also work, but its just going to look odd.

its done!
well for the most part, he still needs a hood and bumper.

i drove all the way accost the state, it was simple for the most part.

i also installed the 07 tails for him, it was easy todo on his truck because the 98-00's came with a 4wire plug already and i just spliced into it.

he bought some silverstar headlights and turn signal blubs, made it look alot better.

is there a difference between the bumpers that are on the rangers with the factory fender flares, and the ones without fender flares? as far as the width goes.

yes, the valance goes up the side to "connect" with the flares, it sticks out a little more.

do a search if you want to see pictures of it.

It really does. I'm gonna jock your idea if it's cool and keep the yellow center and just get the edges painted. How much did you pay for it to be done? I got a 100 quote.

Back of my truck. I realize the Ranger decals on the wrong side. Thanks to Daniel, but I'm also covering the holes that the old "FORD" decal was on:
