'06 Conversion?

I have a '00 Ranger XLT 2WD 3.0L... If that even matters.
But I have recently rear ended someone.
And I have just received the insurance money so I can get my truck done.
And im gonna do it myself so I save all the labor money and get to put some more money into my truck. But I was wondering is it possible to put a '06 clip on a '00? Whats the difference? Just the headlights, and the grill and bumpers? Are the hoods different? Are the fenders different? And would it be worth it to do this?

F**K it. It will cost too much. I think im gonna just get clear corners and call it good. Maybe a aftermarket grill, like a street scene, or something.
Thanks for your help!

You could always just step up to the powerdome hood on the 01-03 Thats what I have and it made a huge difference in the appearence of the truck.

If you did do the conversion you would also have to swap all the plugs for the lights as they are different. How much money did you get. I'm sure we can tell if you got enough to do it.

Well almost anything is possible with fabrication. But it would take a lot more than just that kit to get it right
