Front Clip Conversion:1998 to 2005+

Ok, so I really like the looks of the front clips on the 2005+ Rangers...Something about them makes me want to
So I am getting ready to paint my truck( single cab 2.5 1998 ranger, and am considering converting it to the style of a 2005 models front clip.
What all mods would be required?
Parts?

I know the fenders are the same...but what would I need?

Thanks...

Been covered before a few times...


header panel, grille, hood, headlamps, corners, headlamp retaining sliders. You can still retain your stock bumper...it'll still work with the newer front end. No actual mods needed...it's all bolt-on.

I know...I know...Ive seen yalls previous threads about posting without pics....

I know....


FAIL!

LOL.


Well....I guess there is only one thing to do!!!

Go to the pick and pay...lol

Will I have to do any mods to the wiring?

What about the hood?

I heard the hood hinges on newer models were spaced further apart?

Is that not correct?
