Hey all. Just picked up my first Ranger a few months ago and have slowly been making it my dream truck. I have a week left until school starts (I'm a teacher) and them I run out of time to spend on truck. Here's a little transformation pic so far- still need to get the rear lift on, the new wheels/tires, and rip out the plastic bed liner and herculiner the thing. Also trying desperately to find a honeycomb grill for a 2000 but so far no luck!
Woohoo! Another 2000, I unconditionally welcome thee
Mike69 here has a 2000 with altered front grill and lights he would be a good resource for questions. He is a daily visitor and will be all over this

memsie, welcome to F-R. You have to swap over to the 2001-03 lights & grille to get the honeycomb grille. I did it in a few hours, it is not that hard. You have to replace the headlights, corner lights, grille, grille surround, & header panel. If you want it to look like a 01-03 you could replace the front bumper & front valance, or it will fit using the bumper & valance from the 2000 like I did. I even replaced the flat hood & went with the power dome hood from a 01 Ranger.
Are you going to use the tonneau cover? Is it in good shape. If it is, and priced right I could be a buyer. I sold my undercover tonneau cover for $250 because i was using my truck for work. It didnt work with the ladder rack and wheel barrow. I now have a company truck. I considered getting a cap but I think a tonneau may look nicer.

I didn't even take it with me when I bought the truck. It stayed in the dude's driveway. It was broken in a few spots and had a wasp nest built in so I said no thanks
Thanks for getting back so quick. It looked in good shape in the pic and I noticed you added bed hooks and it was removed. Mine would have been damaged too if I tried to store it. Mine was a black crinkle. I would have painted yours vista blue to match my truck. Dang...just an impulse. That's how i get myself into so many projects. Lol.
