Front clip suggestions

So my dad just bought a 97 f350 cclb and then a couple weeks later it hit a concrete bollard (not him a friend was driving) and wrecked both quarter panels, hood, grill, headlights. So know I am trying to help him find parts.

Any suggestions on upgrades?

Basically he needs a full front clip, what years are compatible just 94-97?
Only from a f350?


Thanks

92-97 I'm pretty sure all f series work and bronco's too, aside from the rad support, should be pretty bolt on easy.

92-96 F-series, 97 F350, and F250 HEAVY DUTY.

Fenders, bumper, grille, plastic, lights, all the same.

Radiator Support is ENGINE specific, and the Diesel one is NOT cheap, or EASY to find.

So basically what he said.

Not hard just won't line up correctly. Some of the bottom of the bed won't fit correctly with your truck.

Actually, I dont think the SD bed will fit at all. It will set on there, but I dont think the wheel well is in the right spot.
