old truck new frount clip

how hard would it be to put the front clip off of a newer ranger (any year which ever would be the easiest)1993 and up and put it on a 91 ranger? would the even be close? has anyone done it? and also would the bed off a newer ranger have the same bolt holes as the bed off of a 91 ranger? im just getting some ideas for some exterior mods that i can do.

i dont think either would look good... i think they have oth been attempted but they just dont look right. besides none of the body lines would line up.

I saw it done on a stadium truck and I would agree with eeverybody, it didn't look right. I will have to search, but I think I have a photo of it.

you could do it on a 93 or later with a little work but the 92 and earlier rangers have totally different body lines so it wouldnt work

I agree with Billy. The 93 and up have a curved bodyline, the previous gen are square. Wouldn't fit without major modification, lots of work and money.

as for the 94 you can put any front end all the way to an 06. its not an easy process butit can be done. as for the back its the same except for the tails...just buy new tails.
this is an 93 to an 04...

but you need to updated the interior as well... just doesnt match after the swap

05 swap to a 93
