I've seen a nice grille on ebay that i like much better than the one i have on my ranger right now. But in the item description, it says its for 4wd ranger (93-94). I have a 95 2wd drive ranger with the regular ugly 3rd gen grille. My question is: will it fit without any, or with minor, modifications? It seems to me that most parts of the truck are the same, regardless of whether its 2 or 4wd. Just want to make sure though before i buy it. I've seen a ranger online with the same grille and it looks pretty awesome. Thanks in advance for your answers..

(The grille from "amautoparts" is the one i would like to have on my truck. The red truck is what it would look like.)

The year difference should have more to do with it than the 2wd/4wd issue.

Yeah you're right. Its usually the case, but all 93-97 exterior parts are the same. for example: the bumper, headlights, header panel, and other stuff is all the same. Thats why i'm hopeful that this will fit. Mine's a 95 and the grille is a 93-94, both 93-97.

It's a plug and play except the top of the grille you want doesn't extend out as far. You'll need to buy a set of trim "eyebrows" for a Splash.
