Default Ranger front clip

I'm thinking about changing the grille. hood and front bumper on my 01 ranger. Does anyone know if all model years 01-present will work or not. I noticed the fenders havent changed but not sure about the core support.

what are you wanting to change it to? To change it to an 04+, you will have to have new header panel, grille and either notch your hood for the grille or buy an 04+ hood

With your current 2001 you can swap up to a 2003 front end which is pretty much the same just different options for grilles.

If you wanna go 2004+ Like Scott said core support and hood. Then just decide what grille you want.


2001-2003 Grille Options


2004-2010 Grille Options

that's a good picture.. it really does show all the things you could do. And Mykhael, you should just make a sticky explaining to people about front end swaps, what works, what doesn't. because people always ask, and you always tell them. haha.
