now honestly, what were your search terms? there's got to be over a hundred threads talking about this.

Man, I'm all for asking questions and getting some good answers if the topic has been "searched".......but be sure of a few things first, if you don't understand or couldn't get a straight answer. I know some of the threads are bunched up with a lot of :bs:. Don't be offended, I really hate the " :gotsearch " sh!t head responses that get posted around here.

I've done the swap, it is pretty straight forward.

Header panel, head lights, corners, hood latch release and hood. That is the minimum parts required. ;)

well i didn't swap hoods and I needed the latch. The 94/95 latch doesn't fit in the 96/97 header pannel. Its not long enough to fit in the slot made. Well at least it wasn't when I tried.

94ONAIR is correct man, you need the release lever for the 96-7 header pannel. It is longer..... :D

Or you can just loosely zip-tie the old one to the header panel. Worked for me no problems at all.

I am not 100% on this but, I think you will need everything listed above including the hood + front bumber cover and crap behind it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong.

that sounds rigth but im not 100% sure either. my next question would be: when switching from a 93 to a 94/95 style front end the hood must also be swapped, correct?

If you know the wiring for your stock headlights, I could really easily whip you up a schematic or wiring harness to make the swap plug n play
