Default 96+ headlights on a 94SE

does anyone know if newer headlight will fit on my 94SE.

Because the 96+ headlights dont have the cut glass they have the cut reflector.

like to put these on mine

they will work...and it takes a little modification to make them work....you will also need to figure out what your going to do with the grille....that will give you a problem too

Been thought about many times, including me. To make this work, changes would have to be made to the hood and grill. Someone in the club actually pulled it off. I forget his name though.

nothing needs to be done the the hood....

1DofSS or something like that did it...it CAN be done, with a different grille or Modifing the current one...its really easy...we specifically looked and compared this at the SEBF meed last week

well while JimmyFloyd and I where at the junk yard we did a 96 to 94 head light test fit. it should work, i looks like the grille will clear the headlight, the only thing is mounting it. but im shure i could figure out something
