I got a question I have done the 98+ swap on my 96 jimmy but the air bag sensors clips are different. On one side it looks like it needs flipped and still got two wires. but on driver side on jimmy there is three wires but on new rad support their is 4 wires any insight. or can I just leave them un clipped.

Keep the airbag sensors that came with your 96. You will need a couple 1/4" rivets to install them(and a big rivet gun).

I have a '96 with the droopy-eyed, sad-face front end. Would like to change it but I'd just end up detonating my airbag and riveting myself to a rad-support. Bad time of year. I might as well just save up and buy an '04

The top link went to a site called "FBI Rides" which shut down back in 2008 or 2009. You probably didn't want to order from them anyway. They didn't have the best reputation if you catch my drift.

Just piece it together. I guarantee it will be cheaper than the cost of that kit anyway. I would probably suggest Rock Auto or eBay for the parts.

You need:

Radiator Support ($52.79 - Rock Auto)
Grille ($40.79 - Rock Auto)
Headlights ($20.15 X2 - Rock Auto)
Turn Signals ($6.09 X2 - Rock Auto)
Bumper ($44.79 - Rock Auto)
Total = $190.85
Additional parts will be needed if you have sealed beam headlights as you're converting to a composite style headlight

*Prices are current as of this post time*

Don't forget:
Bumper side support brackets
Plastic locks for headlights
Grille trim strip
Plastic valance under bumper, and bolts
1/4" rivets To reinstall airbag sensors
For changing from sealed beam, 2 9006, and 2 9005 pigtails
