Yes..u can do a swap with a newer ranger...but u may need to get a new hood!!
98-03 hoods are all interchangeable...but 04+ had a big change in the hood and grill mating and lineup.

Default Re: Front End Swap guide 1998-2000

Read through all these pages and just need to see if someone can tell me if I have this straight.

I would like to swap only the bumper on my '97 with a 2004-2005 non foglight one. Or any other bumper that doesn't taper in and exposes the tires like mine does. Also one with more plastic in it as they are lighter. I know this sounds stupid but there is a reason.

It looks like my '97 frame is narrower than the 98+ frames. Can I modify a 98+ bumper mount or do I have to have one from the same year as the new bumper. I think any 98+ bumper mount will work because I thought it said all 98+ bumpers were interchangeable. If I have to modify a 98+ mount what would would I have to do to it?

Also are there any other pictures of bumpers listed with the years? The ones in this thread only seem to be 2000+. I would love the STX bumper but I am sure they are pretty pricey and would probably take more work than I really can do. I don't have any designs on changing the grille just the bumper.

Thanks for any help.

core support, header panel, fenders, grill, hood, lights, hood latch and bumper if you want to complete the look. when i did my swap on my 93, i ended up replacing all the inner fender structure as well.

start to finish:

most don't, but i found the core support didn't really sit right in the older inner fenders. the 98+ inner fenders slope down a lot, where as the 93-7 are square and pretty straight. plus, you have to drill out all the spot welds for the core support anyways. so when i got my core support from the yard, i cut it across the inner to keep from drilling 50 some odd spot welds.

ok thankyou. i just bought this truck and its my first build. hope it all goes good. ill try and put pics up later. it was in an accident and they hit so hard that it broke the motor mounts, put the fan through the radatior, bent the bumper to hell and the bumper/ crush zones. sounds like alot of shit but not hardly. was just wanting to do the swap because like i said its my first build. also i would like to try and throw 4x4 under it but that will be later on down the road.

Hey all just started my front end swap on my 1999. I got used 2007 headlights, a used 2003 header panel and new aftermarket grille. I painted the header panel black. I also opened up headlight and painted them as well as marker ligjts black. I put header panel and headlights on I'm waiting on my grill so I put my old one meanwhile it looks good. Next is bigger tires and new paint job
