Changing the front end...

So who has done the 05-07 front end conversion? I have bumper, grill, headlights, and the plastic piece for behind everything. We're thinking of doing the HID bulbs and I know that I can get them to fit the truck, but what would I have to do if I wanted to keep the stock bulbs?

Any advice would be great! Thanks ya'll.

Re: Changing the front end...

If you want to keep the stock H13 bulbs I would get a kit from one of the vendors. I hard wired mine into some adapters and they work good but it's not as clean as I'd like it.

You will need the bumper brackets to bolt the bumper up to yours. The fog lights are different too.

Re: Changing the front end...

i just did mine the exact same as what you are doing. i ordered hid's from retro-solutions. todd was his name. i told him what i was trying to do and he sent them with the correct h13 bulb but a 9007 harness to plug right into the truck. worked flawless.

If I was going thru the trouble of that swap, I'd have to get the Harley Davidson lights for sure.

Post it up for sale on here. I'm sure it would be purchased quickly for guys with 2001 and older trucks.

I thought it was just the headlights that were different? I am trading my headlights for the grill so I'd only have bumper and grill.
