There are also some extra clips needed to hold the side parking lights into place
I don't understand how there is an extra light when the 00 ranger has the lights and the 01+ ranger has 3 lights. Can someone explain this to me please I am hoping to do the swap in a week or two

you will probably need the hood latch for the newer hood. you will also need a driver side hinge as well (iirc)

Thinking about doing a 01-03 conversion on my 99. I already have an 01 powerdome hood (just gotta have it painted and then put on), and im wonderin about the header panel...found somenon ebay thats listed 01-06...is that right??
Or whats the best option of where to buy one? Ive already hit all my local junk yards and found nothing.

So once i get the header panel I just need the honeycomb grille and lights correct??


------


According to the carparts.com site a yard about 35 miles from me in another town that I havent searched, has a 2003 grille but doesnt specify if its a honeycomb...and they also have a header panel..


Also looked up ebay stuff for a panel
http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_trks...at=0&_from=R40

And found this panel and light combo
http://www.ebay.com/itm/01-03-FORD-R...587488&vxp=mtr



It seems there are other griles for the 01-03 rangers...but are the header panels all the same?


-----

This ebay one says fits 98-05.....wtf...

Unbolt your 02 and bolt the 00 up. Direct replacement
