A mix of both lol. Aftermarket lights, not sure about grill, got it off ebay but seems pretty nice . header panel and hid's were from ebay, the clips I salvaged from my old panel, and the inside air dam thing and headlight retainers came from the dealership.

For a font clip swap on a 94 to a 03 ranger do i need to mod the frame so the 03 radiator support can sit properly or is it a bolt in operation

have you read through this thread? it has been answered multiple times. the 98+ aren't the width as 93-97. it's not bolt on, you would have to cut and weld.

yep. we cut the core support mounts off the frame and remade them. also, the frame horns are different for the bumper.
