You will need

hood
header panel
headlights and corning lights
grille assembly
bumper and valance

You will also need to get the headlamp retainer sliders as well to hold the headlamps to the header panel properly. There's also little nutset/jnut what ever u call those things on the header panel to secure the grille to it...same goes with the corner lamps.

Headlights corners grille and header panel<--Click

Dont have to use that grille but if you use the EDGE honeycomb grille u will need to correct hood

easiest thing to do is find a truck and a junk yard and just pull everything off the front

Deals to hold lights in plus jhook deals for corner lights
