I think you should get the clear headlights/ turnsignals and leave it at that. If they were black then it would look like a big black hole in your front end.

Smoked lights, paint the headlight surrounds and outer part of the grille gloss black, and paint the recessed parts of the grille red to match your truck.
For lights, just go to Ebay and type in "1996 bronco headlights" and pick your poison. Make sure whatever lights you settle on have the metal deflector over the bulb.

do as superduty said, paint the inside of your grill to match your paint color.

i would do exactly this. the color matched grill inserts will pop real well. the smoked head lights will look real good with the black grill and grill gaurd. dont mess with the LED or halo lights...just get the smoked ones. they will look great. i'm hoping to do the same soon!
