i want a grill thats not billet just platic.

i was looking at a 2008 ford ranger sport. I saw the inside of the grill. it had 5 or 6 bars. they were plastic. i wa wondering if i could make that fit in my 99 for ranger grille. i want little to no billet and chrome on my truck. im goning for the all white look. it would be awsome if someone had the measurements of the inside grill part. what ya'll think?

unless you have good plastic welding skills(cutting, glueing, sanding, preping, painting) I wouldnt waste the money.. the 06+ STX 08+ SPORT grille aint cheap..

After looking at your cardomain, id paint the rear bumper or get a roll pan, save up for a drop, get non-flap style mirrors like the cal vu ss's, paint the grab handles, and maybe some white wall tires with your stock rims glossy black? idk lose the mud flaps..

what look are you going for? sport truck? off-road truck? old school truck?

think only way you could make it work with out a lot of work would be to update your trucks front end to a 2004 front end

The part the grill fits into is all on piece that goes under the head lights. Yours doesn't it stops at the lights
