I am thinking that unless you can find a side impact new range rover in a junk yard, that you are gonna be paying probably around 10k in parts atleast.

So what your sayin gis I would be instore for a lot of $$ of fabrication? I have been looking up parts online all last night and from what I can gather, the majority of the big bulky parts I would need is in the 3000-4300$ range. Reference source... eBay. The only part I could not find on ebay which would probably be a lot was front hood. Im probably gonna go back home this weekend and out of my dorm/house and check out there. Every other vehicle there is either a rover or bently. HOpefully I can find one thats got some bad frame work or has rear end damage, heh.

in order to do this... you'd spend an @$$ load to start off and then at least over 100 hrs of labor.. it won't be hard to do just take hours and hours of time.. cuting and sectioning and repeat and repeat un till it looks good to your eye and a whole bunch of other people cause after u look at somjething for a while it'll look good no matter what..... "really if u try this lay off buying a 30 pack stick to a 6" But like i said lots if hours lots of beers and lots of head scratching but honestly you'd be better buying all the parts and takeing it to a shop and have them do it .... could probally pull some nice sponcers to.....

Edit
also you'd probally wanta cut your hood in half to make it easiser for that bolting up.... i say do it as long as u can put your truck back together if it doesn't work out

Edit #2

it'll only look bad *** if you truck sits on the ground.... i don['t thin it'll look good with a static drop

Who wants to ruin a classic such as the Ranger by turning it into a Range? Isnt that a waste of time? You want t truck that looks like that. Buy a Range and slammmmm it on 24's or some ****. I mean come on dude. For real. Buy a Ranger if you want a ranger. If you want a Range. The buy one. Thats how I feel about it.

Its not all about wanting a ranger or a range rover. Its more of what you can and can't do. Finding out if its possible and looking at all the options there are. And A range = 70,000+, not in my finances, but eh, everyone is entitled to their opinion.

I can cause someone to rearend the next Ranger Rover I see... then after it goes to a pick-n-pull, Ill grab the pieces you need and sell'em to ya

That Rangeover looks bad a$$ though...it'd only look good on lowered trucks, so I dont think I'd do it on mine...but it does look hella nice
