Hey Rommelx3, I have a 98 ranger 4x4. I like the honeycomb look also. So what do we have to do to switch ours out for that model? I think they started in 2002?

That style grille started in 2001 and ended in 2003

I cant seem to find anywhere selling a full front bumper assembly for a 06/07 STX. I have a 2009 ranger and want to swap that bumper on, i asked ford but they sell it without the fog light housing plastic, ill pay almost anything to get my hands on those plastics, somebody must have them!

I know this is a very broad question but any idea of cost for going from a 2000 to a 2001-2003 edge front end?

i have a 96 Ranger XLT 4 cyl 4 spd w/ OD 2wd and i want it too look like the 2011 Ranger Sport, due to they don't/won't make a 4wd 4 cyl 4 spd w/ OD in a regular cab but i do like the new look and want the improve fuel mileage that was created w/ it, i'm pretty sure the fenders and hood will work w/o much "modification" but not totally sure what else i'll have to replace

Where do you get a bumper that have fog lights and tow hook. I got a ford ranger. My first kind. And the person just tossed a plastic bottom bumper thing that looks like crap. How much money would i need and do i need professional help or not.

Any information on wiring that is needed when changing headlights on a 99 to 01? Do the current harnesses just plug into the new headlight or do I need to buy the new harnesses and rewire?

Would it be easier to just go HID while I'm at it?

p.s maybe this is the reason my dam front end wont line up right, one side has a bigger gap between the header panel and the bumper than the other side. anyways I guess if the answer is yes, that would mean i need to buy some bumper brackets for a 01 front end and swap them over to the newer 05 front end Right?
4evermodding- did you ever figure this out? My front end is kinda jacked up thanks to hitting a doe a few years back. I'm thinking about sticking with my stock honeycomb grill, but I plan on converting to an '04+ Edge bumper w/ square fogs. Will this work? Will I need to use the '04+ brackets?

Good write up. I plan on doing the 01-03 conversion on my 99 as soon as I get some money. Gonna go with the honeycomb grille. Is wiring involved, or do they plug in?
