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.

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

I choose 08 front end....they're much cooler than the 05+ front ends, they really throw people off.

IMO they really don't look all too well with the 99-07 body style.

Yea I ca see what you mean now by not looking good. How much would that conversion run with the parts.
