Default New To The Forum - Have a Question

Im new to the forum and new to the Rangers.

My dad has had a 03 Ranger for a few years and I just purchased a 05 Ranger. The previous owner of mine had added a billet grill and what also looks to be a new trim ring around the grill and under the headlights. I am trying to find a similar kit for my fathers 03.







Thanks to anyone that can help

Only option is putting billit in to replace the honeycomb. Do you see the major difference between yours and your fathers truck in regards to the grille....look at hte hood.....

i see the difference between the 2 it is obvious. i was just wondering if there was something for his that would replace the blue trim with crome and have inserts to put under the headlights like for my 05. i understand it will not cover the top of the grill due to the difference in hoods just wanted to replace the sides. Just wondering if there is such a thing out there. thanks

There is a grill shell out there like what you're looking for. I have no idea who makes it, but in my opinion it looks really cheap and way overdone.

that is very close to what im looking for. if anyone can find me even a company name or site that carries them that might steer me in the right direction that would be great. i would like to find one that is like that but has individual peices for under the lights that can be painted thanks

You will not be able to get it with individual pieces under the head lights. That's one of the differences between the '01-03 and the '04+.

that's the only way to get what you want is to swap to a '04 or newer header panel and grill.

thing below the headlights on the 01-03 is incorportated into the grille. on the 04+ trucks, it's incorportated into the header panel(what the grille mounts to).

You know you could always get that grill that I posted and sand and paint the part under the headlights to match the body if that's what you're really set on.
