BAGGED92RANGER. Rock on. To me, a 2wd Ranger plain cab is a modern version of the 3 window coupe of the 30s early 50s hot rods and lead sleds . I have no clue about how easy it would be . But if you bagged it already, grafting a new nose on shouldn't be too big of a deal. :D

Hey guys so I just spent a few hours searching. And I can't find what the "difference" is on the 96 ranger hood to the 2000 hood. Some guy said the sender curve of different another says its narrower and other people argue I kinda want to keep my grill and head lights and keep my 96 mcniel 10in flaired fenders too.ha also I'll be using hood pins and not the hood latch so can anyone tell me if I can fit the 2000 hood with my 96 ranger grill header panel and lights? Thanks in advance. I'm buying a new hood and wanted to get the power dome hood of I have to ill replace it all but I'd rather not yet.lol

Hello, new person here!
I have the exact same question.

Intro(I'll try to be swift):
Somebody I know just had me purchase a Ranger Splash Edition with a slightly smashed front end. He then had me keep it to work on, rebuild, refresh, drive, etc.
It's got 137xxx but has been well taken care of.
Ive done a few things here and there, purchased some parts and consumables, that kind of thing.
Between today and tomorrow, I should be just finishing up tracing some electrical bugs, upgrading any anemic failed wires or circuits, and then a sorting a few alternator issues.

For here and now my main question is as quoted.
I've gotten many different answers about the hoods.

I have found a fiberglass hood on an 01 or 03 ranger, can't remember the exact year(can take pics), but I can get it for literally 20 or 25 bucks since the underside has a small chunk of the framing broke off; moderately easy fiberglass fix.
Honestly, they do look close-if not the same, they even have the same hood hinges(except they were bolted to the firewall; mine are welded or something)..BUT with that said, that's with me driving from where one truck is parked, back to where another is, with a bunch of dinkin around in between. Also, I forgot my tape the last time I went, so while I may think they look close, I could not measure. I'm really hoping to find somebody who has tried it or really knows with certainty.


Simply,
will a 2001 or 2003 4.0 Ranger hood fit my 1997 4.0 Ranger splash 2wd manual, while keeping the rest of the 97 front end, fenders and whatnot?
If you do Not think it can be done, do you mind telling me what all is defferent?


Pleeease only answer if your 99.99% sure or better,
thanks a ton!


P.S. I have a small list of some more questions that I'll be asking over the next few days and weeks; and I think, if anybody is interested, in return I'll go ahead and document, and then organize the build and what i learned.

Ok man so I asked the question and got nothing so I went for it. you need the headlights and grill and header panel to fit the hood properly it all lines up except the very front kinda has an underbite look because it's for a have between the hood and grill. 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...

I have built 2 gen 3's (93 & 94) and am workin on 2 more (94 & 95), so I will tell what I have found within these builds, but if you need to know other info, I have the ability to check via Ford catalogin at work:

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!:icon_confused:

Front Axle

I have a 1994 Mazda B4000 4x4 and I am wanting to get another front axle to put in it. I believe that it has the Dana 35 under it. Will a front 4x4 axle from a Ford Explorer fit in there? Any help would be appreciated. I have just recently gotten the truck and I am wanting to fix it up. Thanks for the help!!
