Re: 05 grill conversion

you have to get a custon 05 grill tha has been trimmed to fit the early bumper or change over bumpers too, you can find the grill on ebay pretty easily

Re: 05 grill conversion

You could just get the 05 chrome package grille for about 170 then trim the bottom off about 1.5" and stick it in... For the price of the ebay one you could do it yourself fairly easy!

You can get the grille from www.powerstrokeshop.com just email them..

Re: 05 grill conversion

the front end conversion is about 1300, just the grill is ~200, all these are new, BUT!!! you have to trim almost the bottom bar off the grill and lower the bumber to make it fit, Which in my opinion looks terrible, thats why i sent the grill i purchased back, you may think that doing that is fine, and to each there own, but personally the front end conversion looks way better.
