I never got pictures I sold the truck like that. I do recommend swapping the whole front it you can get it for cheap





Perfect, thats exactly what I needed to know!
Thanks for the quick response too.

By underbite, do you mean the hood hangs over the grill a bit or the hood is short for the grill?
No way to remedy this except just doing the whole front clip?
Yea so I guess under bite was wrong. It's like the a gap in the smile. The hood bulges up over where. It meets the grill and there is a gap other then that it lined up everywhere else I think. But yea front end swap to fix it.

so in order to exchange chassis on a 4x4, it has to be a 4x4 chassis also.2wh drive chassis doesn't match 4x4 extra cab chassis?

It is easier to simply use the same frame for the same application to avoid having to move cross members...cutting and welding, modifying this and that and extra time, money and frustration involved in "conversions".

It can be done from what I've read from others...on several sites...

93-97 fenders, hood, front bumper, grill, headlights, marker lights are a direct swap.
93-94 radiator supports are same and 95-97 are same (2 different PN's)
93-97 doors interchange
93 to 08 beds are direct bolt ons and taillights are interchangeable
92-02 Explorer rearends are direct bolt-in if you want 4" of drop in the rear, if don't want the drop, then you have to weld on new leaf spring perches
92-02 Explorer seats will bolt right in after you swap the Ranger tracks to them, the Explorer seats have the holes made into them for the tracks
93-97 cabs are interchangeable, as are 98 up
82-97 steerin boxes are interchangeable to include the MS boxes
82-94 heater boxes interchange, as does 95-97

I'm sure I'll think of more, but that's all I can think of for now!
