Default New front end

Ok guys modding will be picking up soon since I'm starting new job. And I was wondering what your opinions are about my front end. Do you think I should leave my current front end and get clear headlights corners and billet grill, or update it to a 01/03 front end clear headlights and corners w billet grill?

Depends.. On whether you're lifting or lowering it. Or have you decided?

i voted 01-03 front end BUT please no billet. Just put in the honeycomb grille. The only Rangers a billet looks good in are the 3rd gens, otherwise they look cheap. If you want that chrome look that you've got allo ver your truck, just put in the 2wd chrome grille.

If you go 01-03, you could do a street scene grille like what Zach Beard had, that was pretty nice and looked better than the billet.
