Question 93 Ford Ranger 'Front Clip Swap'

I'm new to the forum, I looked for about 20 minutes, could not find an answer to my question.
Is there a list/chart somewhere that will tell be what front clips will swap out (With/without minor modification)?
Like this guy did a 1993 ranger to a 2004, I would like to know what will fit my 1993 splash 4x4.

Sorry if this was already posted, I just can't find it.

93-97 are same and a direct swap

To do the 98 up as in that link, you will also need the radiator support, hood, & bumper and you will also have to modify/make bumper mounts.

I'm gettin ready to start somethin similar but opposite, as I picked up a 99 thats missin the front end and I'm gonna swap a 94 front clip onto it.

To go to a 2001-2003 front end on your 1993 you will need Hood, fender, header panel, lights, corner lights,

2004+ you need a 04+ hood and grille plus all the previous stuff

Biggest modding spot is connecting the fenders and header panel

94 to 03/04 Conversion!!

The grille and header panel are 01-03 the bumper and lower valence are 2004

Before:


Then:




Pile of old parts:


More work:




Ta daa!!

Would that work on a 95 stepside splash? I really dont like the look of my 95...lol and that changed it so much...very nice good. Also cost wise how much am I looking to spend?
