Muscle grill swap - parts collection

What up

I might be getting the damaged grill from this J10 pretty cheap



My question is basic. I want to make sure I get all of the parts I need from the J-truck, what all do I need to grab?

I haven't seen it or any other muscle grill-equipped FSJ up close enough to inspect the mounting pieces. I know most of it is straight-forward,but what about the connections to the square headlights?

I have the razor grill on my '78 Cherokee and plan to swap grills every now and then. Do I need to clip the wiring a few inches behind the headlight plugs?

Thanks in advance

ive never seen round headlights up close, so i wouldnt know for sure but the square headlights have a three prong plug, if that helps any, all you need for the swap would be headlights, headlight bezels, headlight buckets, grille, and grill surround, looks like a good deal, is the guy parting out j10 or selling it or what

I'll have to pull a headlight off to check the plug pattern.

He was offering the J10 up running for $700 with what he says is a 4.2L-6 under the hood. He's decided to part it out (near Waco). He sold the short bed off of it , the axles and the T-176/208 combo out of it

I'm kicking the tires on the grill and fenders. I don't want to pass up good widetrack fenders,but I probably need to focus my $$ on mechanical necessities

you know how it is

I talked to a guy a couple of years ago that had pulled the engine out of his '77 Cherokee in favor of a Chevy 350 since he knew Chevys and didn't know Jeeps well. He took the Cherokee's engine to scrap and got $40 for it

It was a 401 and he had no idea what he threw away
