Re: 08-10 front end conversion

it's not really that hard just time consuming....

you'll need:

hood
fenders
grille
bumper
wiper cowl
headlights
hood supports( 08+ are different )
and random nuts and bolts
spacers( I've seen PVC, but I used shock sleeves )
a few pieces of flat stock steel( to make lower fender mounts )
either 08+ fender liners or modify your current ones( I modified my current ones ).
fender vents, nameplates and fender grilles( usually bought in same piece as lower vent )....

it's a time consuming process....just take your time and make it right.

Re: 08-10 front end conversion

if you save the headlights you can actually use the HID's in the 08+ headlights, they are the same.
