Front end swap

I did search, but it came up with no mention of the type I want. Has anyone ever completed or at least seriously considered a front end swap from a Lincoln Blackwood?

The Blackwood front end is the same as a Navi front end. I've seen a couple on a ranger...but it's a full blown humongo sheetmetal rework job. One major concern: size difference.

it will take alot of Fab work to get it to fit and look good on a ranger but it can be done people have put the navi nose on s10's and mustang nose's on rangers so it can be done but how much time and money do you want to spend doing it is the question, and do you have the body skills to do it.

it looks ugly imo. i like the look of the newer navi's

I think I remember seeing a post over on RPS about a ranger having a Avi front end...Lincoln Aviator.
