Default 00' Ranger Grill, want to switch out to...?

Hello all, I have a 00' XLT Ranger with a stock white grill... kind of ugly. I found a 05' grill on CL, are they compatible? what year are besides the obvious 00' and whats the best way to get something stylish and non-white loking in there? Thanks for the help

Nope, you cant switch them out. You can however swap front ends to say an 01-03. but you would have to have headlights and corners, 01-03 header panel. you'd also want a powerdome hood to make it look right and the bumper. You dont "have" to have these though. all you "need" is headerpanel and lights.

you can upgrade to an 05 as well, but you'd "have" to buy hood as it is notched out for the grille.

this guy done his 99 model:

Default same bumper

it looks like the bumper on those before and after's is the same...? I am going to go check out a local JY and see what I can find, any suggestions on what to look for, ensuring the easiest and most prepared swap out possible? and how easy is it to swap out a hood? Thanks for your time

They are, he's in process of finding bumper for it. find 01-03 header panel and all hardware to mount it. then find some 06+ headlights because they are clear. Then find a, 01-03 powerdome hood. also i think an 04-05 chrome capped xlt bumper would look best

as far as hood goes, it shouldnt be too bad, id recommend getting a helping hand. all you ahsould have to do is remove bolts from hinges and remove. then place new hood on and adjust. when above person switched out their header panel and all i think he said it took him like an hour to do it
