Swap help?

I'm wanting to swap the front end of my 96 to a 98 hood, grill, headlights. I'm wondering what else I'll need.

Welcome to the forum

'96 is 2nd generation, '98 is 3rd generation
read here:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_R...(North_America)

3rd gen is about an inch wider than 2nd, but you should be able compensate for that.
Hood may be the same but never tried it
