Question Stay Ranger o Go Raptor

Hi Eveyone...maybe not all of you are fan of raptor conversions but the I came across with guy that can make the raptor front and tail in scale to fit the actual ranger body.
So the final result will be a baby raptor and not a disproportionate raptor/ranger

The cost is 2K including:

> OEM parts (front healights, grill & taillight)
> Labor
> Paint (the entire truck)
> Fix any body detail I want (aside the conversion).

He's about to render the truck ('ll post pictures soon) but my question is...

Should I just facelift my 01 XLT Flareside Ranger with a 04 XLT Front (Obviously cheaper)



or Go big and make the Raptor conversion?

What do you think guys?

so he's using raptor head/tail lights but it's supposed to be scaled down? just do the clip update, raptor conversions on rangers always look like shit.

Well obviously he can't replace the head/tail light sizes but he's going to cut
the raptor grill by the middle and shrink it, make the Ford letters to scale, roll out the fenders & make the hood vents.

Same on the back of the truck
