Any auto parts store should carry the screws and those nutsert thingys that you need to mount the grille to the header panel...and mounting the side lights to the header panel. I just hit up my local store for a fellow member(MudSlanger) for his front end swap and sent him the exact clips and screws as stock 01-03s have.

I'm unsure. lol...i can get he sizes and stuff....for the 01-03 and filling all the holes needed to mount the grille....a grand total of 13 or 14 screws and screw 'nuts'(cant remmeber the proper name.). little piece of sheet metal shaped in a 'u' that clamp onto the header panel, the backside is 'threaded' or acts as a thread for the screw to screw into.

I took these for Chris(MudSlanger) for his 01-03 conversion on his '98-00. I made them smaller for your 56k situation. Those silver thingys is what i'm talking about. The screws are exactly the same screws as what hold your current signal/corner lamp housings. The plastic 'cover' thing is a 01-02 thing i believe...you do not need it for your conversion, as i don't run them. It's probably been mentioned before, but you do need those 'sliders' that hold the headlamps into the header panel. two per side....you can see in the pics.

Yep...no probs. Weird how a 2001 guy is helpin' somebody do a 01+ swap on a 98-00 truck.....and i've never had hands on experience with the swap. I hope to change that soon though...

Eh its a pretty common sense swap, can't really mess it up. Yeah Dustin you'll need those little metal pieces that hold the headlights in, you might have to hit up a junkyard for those. Then those random screw and nut clip things, you might have a good amount that you can use off of your truck now.
