If you have fogs you will need the newer style pig tails.
01+ head light retainers

I believe that is about it. The swap isn't too difficult.
Also need an 06+ hood latch

My 03 XLT had the fiberglass powerdome, and t-bar IFS is not just in Edges. Just wanted to clarify.

No he wont need new fenders 98+ is all the same. Just because he wants to LOOK like an edge doesn't mean he has to have tbars. I think people are taking what he is asking out of context. He mostly wants the look/colormatch. A lot of people will do that to the xlt and go for an sporty lowered look.

As far as the hood latch goes he will only need a 04+ as it is all the same.

He was a 4wd. The only way he had tbars on an xlt is if it is 4wd.

Yeah all you need is the list I posted + the 04+ hood latch.
