Just go to a body shop and have them order everything then trade your oem stuff to them

ya I don't think that's a option.... I highly doubt a body shop wants my stuff sitting there .... hell they might not get a 99-04 in for collision repair for MONTHS

Id be careful with ebay stuff, I've bought some pure chit off of there, but then again I've got a couple great deals. I bought some headlights for my dads f150 from there and they were nothing but trouble. I would just do what bruce suggested, the body shop will get oem and will prolly buy your old front clip from you. If not, sell it on cl.
