What year truck do you have?

This one clearly shows the inner fenders cut to accept the core support. There is not A LOT of fab work just some minor trimming to be done

i know this intended post is old, but that is my truck. that's the current state that it is still in. once the old core support is cut out, it's just a matter of welding in the new one. there is minor trimming that needs to be done at the top of the inner fenders as shown. a little pie cut and a few taps with a hammer and it will be good to go. from there, the lower core support mounts will have to be fab'd and welded to the frame. i'm planning on using some 3/16ths angle iron so i can drill the hole where ever it needs to be.

Default Re: Front end conversion??

Hi there, I have a 98 Ranger and I want to have the 04-05 front end set up. How do I? What will I need. I have already the 04 F150 headlights ( the Halo lights) will that work as a replacement for a ranger lights? If so I need to know how to connected it?

you would need the hood/header panel/headlights, corner lights/ grille/bumper/valance maybe something else, but this should just about do it

94 to a 98+ requires cutting and welding. if the part that has to be welded on isn't in the correctly location, none of the rest of the panels will line up right.
