Default 2x4 to 4x4 grille 98-00

Searched a bit through the forums and didnt come up with anything so sorry if its is a dupe.

I recently lost my grille due to the broadside of a deer, since i have to replace it anyway would a 4x4 grille fit? My guess is that it will but just wanted to see if anyone has done this.

The vertical bars on the 4x4 are flush with the outside perimeter of the grille. On the 4x2, the vertical bars are recessed, and the horizontal bar is flush with the outside perimeter of the grille.

4x4



4x2

Hey guys, I have a similar question on a 1994 Ranger ... will one of the black 1994 4X4 grilles fit my 2X4? If so, do I need any extra trim, parts?

I also had a little run in with a deer ... and since the old one is toast ... I thought the 4X4 grille might do wonders for the front of my Ranger!

Thanks!

Yep, it's also a '94. (Sorry, for not saying that before.) As I'm looking at the two basic grille styles (2X4 and 4X4) ... I'm not sure if they are interchangeable because the tops look a little different in the pictures.
