The Ranger Converted to Range Rover?

Has anyone seen that Ranger that was converted to a new style ranger rover front end and rear? I wasn't able to find it here but if anyone knows where I can get more information about it, it would be nice. I wanna see how expensive it would be to do all that work, thanks in advance.

you talking about the one in Minitruckin mag?

it was a photoshop, its never really been done

if you knew how to do bodywork, you could do it all yourself, just need to buy all the body parts off a range rover

Oh, it was photoshopped? Thats terrible. I saw it in the mini truck thing and they said that all the part for the new range rover mounted right into place on the 01-03 rangers. That kind of gives me the sense that if I swap out my header panel to the 01 style rangers and got all the parts it could be done... or was that information about it all fitting just a crock of ****?
