Time to reassemble my jeep! Input would be nice!

Well I tore my 2001 apart back in December and gave it one heck if a facelift, I also bought 2 new fenders and a new hood and took them in to get painted well they came back Friday and look awesome kinda a shame to out such nice new paint and try to match it to a 13 year old black paint job,lol oh well. Anyways was wondering if there is a order that the new panels should go back on in? When I took the old stuff off I tore the grill out first so forgot to mention that git raptor lined while off the grille, so that also has to go back in. Would u mount the grill then the fenders? Or fenders then mount the grill? I know hood really don't matter seems it may be easier to mount the grille first. Hope someone that has don this before can lend some advice! Thanks

I would do the grill then the fenders. remember, if you have more than 2 screws/bolts left over you did something wrong.

That's what I was thinking starting with grill. Wasn't for sure if there was really. Right way to start, And I sure hope I don't have any bolts leftover, lol.

When I pulled the body off to swap the frame I reassembled grill first then fenders. To get the fenders to line up correctly it's best to start all the bolts the same amount and then tighten them all up. Easier to do that when the grill's on there already! Good luck!

Thanks Man, LOL I had to fix a cracked intake on my F150 the other day. And of course I had 1 very small bolt left over. I have went back over everything 2 times and cant find where it goes. Now you brought this back up? I will be out looking over the truck. lol

To the OP I would thing grill then fenders.
