Yea, give me the fenders, I need em!

On a serious note, take the headlights,grillefenders,rad support as one piece from the donor truck. Alot easier to just stick the whole thing on

the cowel from the 94 will also be needed. There is a bolt on the bottom of the fender to mount to the cab which is a pain in the ass. The older ones go straight up into the cab. the newer ones go horizontal. E#asiest way is to bend up a small peice of steel and put a bolt in both holes. I've done this swap. it's not hard and works well.
