Question 2002+ Grille on a 2000 Ranger

I just recently bought a blue XLT Off Road package Ranger and I love the truck. The only thing is the grille is... not quite my style. I really like the newer Ranger's grille's, especially the black mesh on the 2002+ models. I was wondering how easy it is to put one of these newer grilles on. Thanks a lot everyone.

01-03 Header panel
01-03 Edge/XLT 4x4 grille(for the honeycomb mesh grille)
01+ headlights and corners
01+ headlight retainer sliders
misc screws.

NO NEW HOOD IS NEEDED!!

The entire swap IS an easy bolt on. It's like 8 bolts. I suggest that before anyone goes and trys to instruct people, that they know what they're talking about first. Instead of feeding false info.

Any idea about how much all this would cost?

HUGE variables there. If junkyard hunting, can be as little as a couple hundred total, everything included.

Are you in Lebanon, OR? If so, I have an entire 01-03 Edge/4x4 XLT grille, header panel, headlights, everything else needed for the swap. I got everything together for a project truck that never happened. Shoot me a PM and we could work something out. I'm just here off 205 in Clackamas.

Well I'm not quite in Oregon.. I live in Lebanon, MO. But thanks for helping me out so much. I found out today that its gonna need a new front wheel bearing assembly. So I won't get to drive it for another couple of days. But I got the truck at a deal so I'll be happy.

I got the same truck except, Red Stepside, I am located in St. Louis.. Just ask/look around the from and you wil find out all kinds of ways to mod and maintain..

Next time we have a Missouri meet it would be great to meet you..
