Prerunner Wreck Repair. Cowl Hoods??

As a few of you may already know i was in a wreck last month with coach bus. bent up my pre-runner bumper, moved the rad support over and destroyed my fenders and misaligned my hood.
Dad and I have been looking into getting McNeil Racing pre-runner flares front and rear. We really want a Cowl Hood for it too. I've seen a few around but I'm sure a few of those companies are no longer around.
Can you guys help us out??
We really want fiberglass with pins and a 3-4 inch cowl.
Thanks guys

honestly why don't you upgrade your front end and add prerunner fenders? Because your front panel underneath headlight is damaged so you're already gonna replace a good sectionof the front end.

What you should do is get .

(00+, choose what year you want your ranger to look like) Ranger header panel, off of ebay i believe.
new headlights, new grille, new hood(powerdome, 2 diff styles that match diff years)
then 2 fender flares.

What this will do for you is make your vehicle look a ton newer like us new guys for not much cost. It really is an awesome mod to do and honestly you're basically at the point that you could benefit from it.

Aftermarket cowl hoods are kind of gay, I think yours would look really nice looking like an 01+ ranger with prerunner flares(since you want them)

since you are rebuilding the front end and replacing fenders you could pull the radiator core support and put on a 01-03 or 04+ front end.

Might as well since you have an excuse to do it.
