Anyone done a 95 with a 96 bumper and fog lights

been doing some searching and I've decided that I want to do a 96 and up front bumper with the fog lights in it on my 95. I know that to go with a 96 bumper with stock fogs, that ill also have to change the grill too.

it looks like it will go, anyone know for sure if it will work?

local JY has about a dozen or so different donors to pick from, hopefully one has the right bumper cover and one has the lights and grill.

It will work,but you have to pull the header panel off a 96-98 in order for the grille to fit properly.

93-95 is the straight across bumper with the 8 slot grille
96-98 is the tall grille with the 7 slot grille.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Idiot PO that wrecked my Jeep rebuilt the front end with 96-98 parts except for the bumper. I hate it because it looks ugly and it's a lot harder to build a custom bumper around the dip.

Thanks man!
My ZJ was in a front end crash and the dummy before me did the same thing but the opposite. Early model header panel and grille on a late model!
So I ordered a new header panel from quadratec.com, new headlights on eBay, new oem lower crossmember rad support from chrysler and custom off road bumpers front and back from a redneck welder!
6" Lift and 33's soon!

I just put a complete header panel with all new lights and grill off a 95 on my 96 and everything lined up correct except the bumper. I only put it on because it was free, had all new lights and the adjusters work. I trimmed the bumper around the grill to make it look presentable I'm probably going to end up finding a matching bumper as well to complete it
