Question front end conversion

i am getting a ranger in the fall and it will be around year 1995 to 2000. i was just wondering what kind of front end conversions i can do to make it look newer that are pretty much all bolt on. i know i would need a new header panel, lights, hood, bumper, and grill and maybe fenders (or do i need fenders?)... anyway my biggest question is what years can i convert to newer rangers? like could i convert a 95 to an 05 and it be pretty much all bolt on? and if im missing something on the parts list could you tell me what?

my limits for working on it are bolt on, drilling and painting.. i dont have access to a welder basically.

or if its easier could you guys just link me to some conversions for examples i can learn from and put it together myself? ive done some searching and i think i know what i have to do but still not quite sure.. anyway thanks guys!

Yes, many people convert 98-00 Rangers to the 01+ style, you will need the radiator core support from a newer Ranger, that's how you will mount the new lights and grill
