This could be a stupid question and it probablly is but no harm in askin. I wanna swap out my 2nd gen corner lenses and headlights for an envoy set-up. my question is how hard is it, is it a pretty straight up switch and how hard is it to line up everything, with the hood and all...thanx guys

If you are talking about the S-series Envoy then the lights are a direct swap. you will just need to find a spot for the balast if they are the HIDs. I have a s10 but right now it has a Bravada front end on it and all of those parts bolted up in about 15 mins with no modifications to my truck or the parts. The headlights are not exactly the same as the envoy ones but are basically the same size and shape. Just keep in mind you are either going to need to make a filler piece or also swap out the bumper because if you install them with a S10 bumper there will be about a 2" gap under the lights and about an inch under the grill.

I hope this helps.

Just for giggles here is a pic of my truck.

This is exactly what an envoy front end looks like with the HID lights.



If you want ones that are all clear then you either have to dissassemble them and remove the amber reflector your self or buy a pair that someone has already done that. If you want HID envoy lights they are going to be expensive. I think the cheapest that I have ever seen them go for was like $160 for a pair with no bulbs or balast. On the other hand if you want lights like the ones on my truck you can find those pretty cheap if you look around. The Bravada lights that I have are the exact same as, Jimmy, Sonoma and non HID Envoy lights and I think I paid like $40 for the pair.

The swap really is crazy easy.

Just slide up and remove the two tabs on the back of the core support and the headlights come right out. then just unplug the bulbs.
Next pop the grill off. Just start at one side and firmly pull on it and it will pop off then work your way across untill the whole thing is off. Then just unplug the signal lights which are attached to the grille.

Then just reattach the new lights with all four bulbs and put them right in the same place that was originally holding the stock headlights. slide the tabs back on and then pop the new grille in.

If you are doing the bumper too I think there are like 6 bolts that hold it on. Just unbolt it and bolt the new one on right in it's place.

swap is cake. everything goes on the same way the stock front end does. same clips and they use the same holes. ony thing different is the high beam bulbs in the envoy lights
just did the envoy nose on mine this yr. still gotta paint cover and install lower billet but i love it as is for now

Billet for the envoy bumper

And theres a couple sets of envoy headlights on ebay but they really expensive. Best bet is to check your local junkyards, I just got two envoy headlights at mine for under a $100.

And heres a pic of mine with stock cleared sonoma headlights..

I've just order a set of the HID lights for $180 shipped with blasters. Was told that they work. will see when I get them. So the HID lights just hook right up? How do you hook up the fog lights?

I'm almost done with my parts. I have,

grill
reinforcement bumper
HID lights

All I need is the bumper cover, I found one but the guy won't ship it >!<
Then just the billet parts and fog lights,

I see that the link to the fog light cost $40 just for one! CRAZY!!

my swap since i cleaned it up. look better now?
took them apart, removed the inner amber lense and resealed, wet sanded the head lights for quite a while then a quick buff and they cleared right up. could use a bit more along with the fog lights which are next cuz theyre original from 98 and in worse shape then the headlight originally were. I took front off the bagged truck since shes stored for the winter and been rocking it on my every day 98 truck for the fall for a lil while. adjusting is still a bit neccesary tho :)~

No they can't. NO ONE makes these headlights in aftermarket. They're probably ordering the new body style Envoy 2002+
