I understand why, it confuses me too...lol When I built it I had plans on keeping it but I knew I didn't like red trucks(sorry red truck owners), anyway I did the 04 conversion on it and them when I picked up my current project truck I decided I wanted to use the 04 stuff on it. I am getting a 98-2000 bumper tommorrow for the red truck so I can put this bumper on the other truck. Hope that makes sense...

Yeah but I'm not going to start parting it yet. Me and another guy went in on it together and there is still some grey area as to what we are using.

you should put the hood off of the wrecked truck onto your other one, then at least it will have a red hood. I think it would look better then the black one until you get it painted.



What does your wife think about you buying so many wrecked rangers?

I was actually thinking about the hood swap.

Yeah the frame is bent in and cracked by the leaf spring mount, even the cab mount is pulled in.
