Just buy this front clip.... I would leave the lights though.

Looking good. Almost as tall as my bronco though. Are you running the 6" superflex coils?

Today was a visually unstimulated day. I got all my brakes done with the exception of two copper washers for the pass side caliper. Get two seals tomorrow and then I can bleed the brakes. Also got my shocks mounted on the front as well.

So was taking measurements today and if I pinch the front end I would have to move the core support closer to the engine. With the elec fan I plan to use this would only allow me to move the core support back only an inch before clearance with the water pump becomes an issue.

So I was thinking leaving the front width and just trimming the fenders, core support to allow for clearance.

I took the seats with the tracks that came with them and bolted some angle to them and then bolted the angle to the floor.

Oh it was so much easier to pinch a ranger front end then an f-series. Spent hours today messing with it and about to say FAWK it and run it stock width (i would if I hadn't just cut my front end all up ). Stupid frustrating.
