Icon4 Attn Ranger Gurus - '92 knowledge needed

Long story short - My Uncle has been in the hospital for the past year following a miraculous heart transplant. As he was recovering and fighting complications his wife would drive his beloved '92 Ranger to and from the hospital to visit. On one of these trips the truck was in a collision with another vehicle and sustained front end damage. Thankfully there were no injuries but certainly some very depressing news for my Uncle who seemed to be getting nothing but bad news following the fight of his life.

Now that he is booked to be heading home shortly we're trying to find him a truck that he will be able to drive once he gets to that point/ability and then sometime down the line use for parts to rebuild his '92.

A little bit of logic has to be thrown out on this one. By most accounts the '92 is totaled considering the work needed. However, it is his mission to get his life back to where it had been, and a huge part of that is being able to organize and complete this project and return his truck to its former, immaculate glory.


THE PART WHERE I NEED HELP
I don't have all the specific info on whats damaged, nor do I have pictures (yet) but I'm assuming most of the front end, especially the left side is thrashed. What are all of the years that I can be looking at for parts that will be interchangeable?

A friend of my Uncle has an '02 Ranger that he's willing to make a great deal on that they want me to check on. I'm fairly certain nothing can be swapped but I figured I'd ask some Ranger gurus before we have to pass.

If we can't find a good doner truck are there any good places to get the parts?

Many thanks for any help!

Sorry to hear about your Uncle. But good luck with the build. once you start looking for specific parts throw up a add on herer and someone might have what you are looking for. Or there might be a few guys in your area that can help out with the build and have it go a bit smother and faster.
