'05 clip on 2012???

This is an honest question and not meant to piss anyone off or start a war.

I can not stand the front end on the 08 and up superdutys. Call me old school but head lights go on top and the grill doesn't have to look like a Tonka truck. That being said I do feel that the 6.7 is a great engine, the interior looks great and I really want A/C seats and wouldn't mind the quieter ride. So....has anyone put an '05 clip on the front of a newer truck? Im guessing it will be another 5 years or so before we get a redesign and may not be able to wait that long.

Right now I think that the Dodge has the best looking front end but unfortunately the rest of the truck is....well...a Dodge.

I think redesign is coming in 2015 but odds are if you don't like this body style then you won't like that one. I don't see why this couldn't be done. If the new clips bolt on older trucks I could see it happen.

not a bad idea. buy a new truck and get someone to do the swap for me that has an 05-07. they get the new parts I get a good looking truck.

Also just looked at the 2015s and they look just about the same as the '14. Not a fan.
