Icon7 n00b, Hou-TX (Pics)

Hello everyone, new here...
I drive a 2001 Ranger Edge. 128XXX miles on it...
Mainly just highway miles...(work/school/art shows)

I ended up trading my civic for this (even trade)

I'm looking to read up how to maintain my truck to stay in great shape.
Also looking to change a few interior/exterior pieces on it.











So I was wondering how much of a pain in the *** would it be to change the grill/bumper/fogs to 2006-2008 parts?

Also are there any online reputable places (non Ebay) I'd be able to pick up these things.

Thanks everyone, not looking to do too much to it.
Maybe better OEM wheels.

Plastic matting instead of carpet.

A few other things...

WELCOME TO R-F!!!

To swap a 06-08 front end....you'll need a grille, header panel, hood, and possibly little dodads....That's not including the bumper. The 06-08 bumpers are actually bumper covers, unlike your truck now which has actual bumpers that you look at. No clue on that swap.

I think you need to get some clear corners for that bad boy...

Damn that sucks for the swap!!!
I might just add new shocks...tires and call it a day.
I'm trying to keep this as a daily driver, I have other plans for my fun commute toy :)
