Front end swap??

Hello I am considering swapping the lights and front off my 1994 ranger and putting one off a 2002 on instead, is this hard? What needs to be changed? Also will the fender flares off a 2002 ranger fit on my 94? Thanks

use the search! fenders, hood, grill, core support, header panel, wiring, lights, and bumper if you want to.

everything bolts on, except the core support and bumper. they will require welding and a little fab.

nope. the shape around the lights are different. they will bolt on though. there is a little trimming of the inner fender as well to get the core support/fenders on.

The only thing I'm trying to do is get the newer lights on it because I hate the 94s lights, will a 99s lights and grille bolt right up?

Unfortunately not. 93-97 had interchangeable parts, They all look just like yours. 98+ are interchangeable with any 98+ Ranger.

These would be a good alternative and a hell of a lot cheaper.

yeah, you can't just put in the newer lights. the header panel (where the lights mount) is different, and the shape of the fender.

could always get the projector ones as well.
