You would have to swap hoods and grilles if you want the 2001-2003 honeycomb look.

hood, grille, and header panel.

You can get close to a honeycomb with an 04-05 XLT grille though and it will bolt on

These grills here are direct fit as 99offroadrngr has mentioned. It's the cheapest route of getting a honeycomb grill in a 04+ ranger.

Go with the Sport Bar Grille. I have it on my truck and it looks awesome. I dont know how set you are on the honeycomb but the sport grille is different and you never see them

Colormatch the surround of this, and I think it would look great.

150-200 is less than cost. either prices there are extremely cheap or someone screwed up. $268 at cost in MI last year

regardless, you got a steal on it.

told you 150-200 was under cost lol. I've priced it out before. Still better than paying close to 400 for one though.

06+ front emblem list price is 57.xx i got it for 37 which is a little better but insane for a piece of plastic that will probably fade lol

I figured it was way under cost. And a 160 price drop isnt to bad. Yeah I got emblems for free mostly because my dad does body work and they always replace them even if there is nothing wrong with them. WEIRD
