    I was looking at the new sport tracs the other day and I really like their grille. It got me wondering if there was any way to put one of those grilles on a 04 explorer.. Its probably a crazy idea but I think it would look cool if it worked. Any ideas on if the two grilles are about the same size?

    You Can,however it would require you changing out your whole from clip. I hit a deer in my explorer, took the insurance money and bought a front clip from totaled 2010 from side impact explorer and changed the front clip out. Now my 03 looks like a 2010. Looks great now just needs matching paint job.

    I'm sure the fenders, hood, bumper and what not bolt up without much if any modification. Pretty common between close year cars.

    You swap the headlights as well, called a front end conversion. Headlights grill, bumper, hood, fenders. As long as the width and what not are similar and can be mounted to the same area's (sometimes new holes are required and such) generally you can make it work. I've seen it done on quite a few cars.

    you can make anything fit onto anything as long as you have the money, but i thought he was just referring to just the grill. not changing out the hood and lights and everything else.
