Default Franken-Truck bumper issue

I've bought a 98 Ranger 2WD that had been wrecked. The previous owner rebuilt the front with a 4WD bumper and grille (he says). Is there any website or thread that shows stock bumpers and grilles per model? I just want to know if there is a difference in the 4WD and 2WD front, and also if anyone has suggestions on a DIY grille insert.

the only difference for the bumpers in the 98-00 model year truck is you have chrome no fog lights, chrome with foglights, and painted. dont hold me to that but i dont think there is a difference between 4x4 and 2wd bumpers

No difference between bumpers, but if it's 4wd, it will have a fog light valence. 2wd's don't have fogs.

Not necessarily. My truck had a valance, but it didn't have fog light holes.

Ok, I have fog light holes and wires for them, so it must be a 4WD bumper. Just got a nice set of Hella lights off Craigslist for $20 that fit right in.
