Upper radiator support will be needed as well so the headlights will bolt in.

There are threads about this all over the place. Yes, it can be done. You need the radiator support, fenders, hood, bumper, bumper beam, headlights, and grille.

Hood, bumper, grill, fenders, splash guards (?), upper rad support, headlights, and misc clips. That should be it.

Wrong. Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. How would a fender cause a differential to go? Or a bumper cause a faulty idle air control solenoid valve. Only thing that that wouldn't be covered is the fenders, bumpers, headlights, and anything else he replaced.

if you're swapping headlights, they can say that they needed to be re-wired to work. and if they say that, then they'll say that the wiring job wasn't done right, which caused the alternator to get weaker, which caused it to mis-fire, causing detonation, and all that stuff. but that's just if they're really desperate.

It really depends on which dealership you're dealing with, but most of them are jerks!
