well c i would like to see it aswell, i seen some one do it to a 93 ranger! they put the 2nd gen explorer front end on it.
they cut part of the old fender off and tacked part of the new one on it! and it looked pretty good after it was finished! the only thing i see a problem with is time, money and the flatness of my front end, i dont know how well the grill would bend to my front end! i wish tehre was some one who has done this lill prject before!

u should be able to swap fenders, hood and all other front end parts from a 2nd gen and itd work and for the rear tails, u would have to cut some of the body for them to fit since they are curved.. very possible tho
