Default grill swap.

Im gonna head to a junk yard here pretty soon to see what kinda "new" (to me atleast) parts i can find for ole ranger. But i was wonderin just what newer years of grills would also fit my 97? and also does anybody ever see any brush guards or toolboxes out there, just wondering.

You'd have to do an entire front end swap to fit a newer grille on your 97 as the fenders, lights, and grille are all different. 93-97 are the only ones you can use.

If you get an LMC catalog, it'll show a diagram of all the parts on the different gens and find exactly what you need.
