Icon5 front end conversion questions..

Alright, I know, and yes I have tried the search button several hundred times but alls im seeing is people doing front end conversions between years. My question, being the noob i am, is what is EVERYTHING i would need to put the 2001 edge front end on my 2001 xlt 2wd... I was given the truck by a family member and its in awesome condition. But I personally hate the look of it (sits too low, just looks stupid IMO) and im not fan of the chrome bumper and grill so its time for a change. Can someone please tell me literally everything i would need? And yes i support critisizm and expect it for not being able to fine it with the search button Thanks in advance

And grille surround, fog lights, and associated brackets. Also a universal fog light wiring kit if your truck doesn't have the wiring in place for the fog lights. If it does, you'll just need a relay. If you want to use the original equipment fog light switch, you'll need a radio bezel w/ the fog light switch opening, and the oem fog light switch. If it doesn't have the wiring in place for the fogs, you'll need a diagram on how to make the oem switch work, or buy the kit from buggman to do the same.

alright, so If your not busy take a look and let me know if im on the right track here.

rear bumper: More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO1103110

front bumper supports: More Information for SHERMAN CCC576B84FR (obviously will need both sides)

Fog lights: More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO2593184 (again both sides)

Grille: More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO1200395

Valance: More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO1095189

Hood: More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO1230171 (not sure if thats the right one??)

Headlights L & R: More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO2502173

sidemarkers L & R:More Information for VARIOUS MFR FO2521168

and I havent found the fender flares yet im still working on finding the edge ones, but does everything there look about right? BTW if you guys need oem parts rockauto is apparently the place to go, everything on that list is cheap as heck, even the headlights brand new are 20 bucks...
