    ATTN: For Those with 94-97 front ends or....

    For those with 94-97 S-10 S-10 pickup or blazer or 1998 up GMC or s10 body style.

    This is the information you need to know about the front up swap to a GMC front end or a S-10 front end 1998-up.

    94-97 S-10 pickup/Blazer

    1.) The Core Support needs to be changed. They are not the same and cannot be fabricated easily to save a little extra money.(had a friend attempt the fabrication)

    2.)After the core support you need a GM or Aftermarket bumper. Now if you want the GMC front end you need to order the GMC bumper with bumper reenforcement. The S-10 is just the bumper no reenforcment is needed.

    3.) This is pretty basic GMC headlights or Chevy s-10 headlights simple, but when you order the headlights you also need the clips to hold the headlights in place.(2 for each headlight)

    4.) If you went to the S-10 front end You will also need Parking lights. you can order these gm(the orange lights) or get APC aftermarkets for straight clear ones. I understand the diamonized parking lights now have side marker orange reflectors.

    5.) Last but not least a grill. This is simple you want a GMC get a GMC. Vice versa for a s-10.

    For those questionable about the Envoy front clip

    1.) I am not up to snuff on this exactly, but from what i understand you can buy these kits for roughly 1500??? Or somewhere within that range. Now this goes like before if you have a 94-97 body style you need to change core supports.

    2.) Some people save money from buying the headlights for the envoy clip because the envoy clip(also from my understanding) their a H.I.D. Conversion. H.I.D. conversion itself is roughly 400 dollars.

    3.) basically to the point of things you can use GMC headlights with a Envoy front end clip. I've seen people ask if you have a s10 if the envoy bumper will work. Well, i believe it would work. Except you will have a very noticable gap between the grill and envoy bumper. This in my opinion would make the front end look worse then it did with the front end. I can further the information, but i do hope everyone has the jist of things.


    If you have a S-10 or GMC sonoma 94-97 and want to switch to one of the front ends they are Compatible!

    I just have one quick quesiton. What exactly the difference between the Envoy and the Jimmy front ends? The bumper cover I understand is different, and the headlights are different...but is that it? Would converting to a 98+ Jimmy front end, and then adding the Envoy headlights and bumper cover be the same as just converting to an Envoy front end?

    Sorry for the confusion.

    The Envoy headlights take same shape as the sonoma/jimmy headlights. the GMC bumper cover would work or the envoy would.
