The underpinnings should be identicle. Take a look at the mazda to ranger conversion to know for sure, I would imagine that for the msot part it would just be a matter of swapping the front clip and at most drilling a few holes. a weekend project at most

Yeah underneath its not much different. Fenders, grille, lights, bumper, hood might be the same I don't know. I don't know if the header panel is different or not. Easiest thing would to be find one that was totalled with a side impact or something.
