No, there are a couple front ends you can try and moddify yourself, IE the Explorer has been done a couple times, and the Sport Track has been tried, but not completed yet. If you havnt ever done body work before though, it isnt something I would recommend, neither are a dirrect bolt on.

No, you can always do it yourself though, and then probley have 3 companies rip you off. For the most part, Rangers dont get alot of attention, and never will. Just know that if you do it yourself, it will be A) Very Costly, even more if you don't know how to do body work, and B) Very time consumming, this is not a weekend project, and will probley take a couple weeks or months to do, add more time if you don't know how to do body worl.

I thought the new explorers and eviators are wider than a Ranger?
I would think that would cause MAJOR problems and not really be worth it, might look into an escape front end, now THAT would be different.

They are wider, but you could section it if you know what you are doing, I have no idea what I am doing half the time anyways, so I would never try that. Im not sure about an escape, the only other thing I have seen is a Sport trac, but that is a lot of work. There was some guy doing a Lincon front end of some sort, but it didn't look that good.

get a hold of the people at devious customs, and they will quote you about 10 large to do it, that was for a navigator front end, the aviator might be cheaper but count on at least 8 G's to get it done. you could do it yourself of course, if you are very, very experienced in both custom fabrication and bodywork.

late model Merc Mountaineer conversion on a ranger would be tight.....It would be a little work but I think the finished product would be well worth it..........
