    Has anyone done this on their first gen explorer? Ive seen it done with the Landcruiser headlights. Anyone got any advice on how to do it? Ive also seen a front end conversion done with the second gen ranger grills replacing the first gen explorer grills. Any advice?

    I have seen pics of people who have converted their 91-94 X headlights to the Toyota Landcruiser Headlights. Ive also seen the stock 91-94 X grill replaced with a new model ranger or explorer grill. Check cardomain for a pic of a 91 or 92 X who has done the landcruiser headlight conversion.

    Doesn't look too bad if ya got some fab skills... If you know you got fab skills (welding included) I bet with alot of prep and design, it could be pulled off...

    Buy one of the lights, and a grill and a fender you can trash... Then I'd say go at it. It's all about trial and error if you can't get help from someone who's already done it. You could also get a fender in usable shape, and if you get it to work the first time, more power to ya.

    Now, why you'd wanna do this, i dunno. Plus being hidden behind that grill gaurd, i can't really tell if it looks all that great...

    Oh, you'd probly need the wiring diagrams from both vehicles so as to get the correct wiring to the new bulbs... unless they use the same style bulb, which i doubt.
