So got some early birthday presents coming. :D Got a Harley grill and Harley headlights coming as well as an '08 tailgate and '08 rear bumper.

The truck is an '05 XL. Am I gonna need a different plug or anything to put the Harley lights in?

Also, is the '08 bumper gonna match up to my '05 bumper brackets?

I figure the tailgate should mount right up, correct? No need to change cables or anything?

Thanx! :D

If the tailgates go the lift assist you need the 08 up bracket. Otherwise everything should bolt up

You shouldn't have a problem with the headlight wiring, it was the 04 and older harness's that needed to be changed for 05+ lights

Nah, it's the regular one. The fancy one costs more than twice as much as the regular one! :eek:

Good deal. If I get lucky maybe I'll get the grill painted and put it all on before TS. That's not likely though. :p

You need the drivers side hinge bracket that bolts to the body to make the tailgate work. But everything else on the gate is the same.

And the part # for that hinge (roller) is 4L3Z*83430B39*AA.

How big of a job and what kind of wiring needs to be changed to switch an 04 or older truck to the 05+ harley lights? thanks

my tailgate had the lift assist. I just took it out and was able to use my stock hinges.

Wow very nice man, that's an 11' tailgate with a 08' bumper? Did everything bolt up ok? I gotta get me a new tailgate too was thinking about a newer model one.

It looks like he hasn't put the 08+ bumper on yet, just the 08+ tailgate. But yes it is a direct bolt up on the bumper & tailgate you have to replace the roller pin on the lower drivers side. O.P. looks good so far
