Default Explorer Front End on a Ranger - Anyone Consider?

Long shot, but has anyone considered this? Any other front end conversions you guys've thought of?

i've seen it done a few times. looks good. requires cutting and welding of the fenders, along with other work. not going to be a bolt on job though.
