04 on an 00 would look like any other 04 out on the road.

Default Re: Front End Swap guide 1998-2000

Can anyone help me how to use 98-00 headlights on an 04 front end? I like the size of the lights better, with the turn signals underneath the head lamp, but because of the "ears" on the 04 and newer header panel, I don't know how it would work. I imagine just cutting the "ears" off is the first step, but I am unsure how the 98-00 turn signal lamps mount up. Can anyone help me figure this out?

I like the 04 look. Unless you do a complete custom build, you're going to look like another year truck, that's kinda the point.

Haha. That's so valid it makes me wonder why I didn't question it when I read it the first time. Lmao. I wonder what he meant by that. Haha.

that's fine that you like that look. but you asked what a 2000 ranger would look like with an 04 clip on it...and i answered that question. i have an 03 front clip on my 93. what does it look like? any 03 ranger, except i have an 06 stx front bumper, brazilian headlights, and a mustang dash/console in the interior. a custom truck. but from the outside, it basically looks like any other 03.

Yeah you need the 01 header panel, and for the light I bought a led flasher and just removed the bulb and tucked away the wires.

Ok I don't want to be beating a dead horse here but. I see everyone talking about switching newer vehicle. But can a conversation be done from an 88 ranger to 98. I'm not sure if the body lines are the same. All the info will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
