help with 05 front end conversion

hey guys ive been looking for an updated look for my front end and i dont want to buy a grill or lights for my 01 yet and then decide to do this conversion and have them not fit.... i almost like the stock 05 bumper better than aftermarket options so i think this is a good way to go for, especially since it likely wont run 1000-2000 bucks like a road armor, grill and lights would

i just cant find a thread with all the info i need in it!!! (yes ive searched)

if i could get a link to a thread that tells me everything i need or an explanation of where to get stuff (minus the salvage yards obviously)... if anyone sells a kit complete for a good price etc...

i understand i need the obvious parts that you see,

grille, lights, bumper.... but ive never busted the front end down, dont know what brackets i need, what the header panel is or looks like etc.

help would be appreciated, i saw a kit on ebay for like 450 that seemed to have everything on the outside but no mounting stuff so i was unsure...

help me out id like to order all this stuff tomorrow so i get it and my tires, and lift in short order

Re: help with 05 front end conversion

try searching ebay, they sell complete kits. If you decide to keep your stock head panel where your lights bolt onto, you will have to cut and also fab up some kind of bracket to hold the bottom of the grill. Also you will need 4 screws about 1/2 long with some of those u bolt type things. You will know what im talking about when you put on the headlights. its not fun and it is time consuming, but the end result makes up for it.
