05 and up grille on my 03?

Just would like to know if there is any special kit needed or even redneck engineering needed to bolt on a newer model grille on my 03'. Does anyone know for sure and wheres the best place to get it? Ebay?

Got mine off Craigslist......I installed mine buy cutting the bottom of the grille...theres a write up w/pics to show how, If you don't want to cut the new grille you will need to also get the '05-newer bumper assembly, and a few other pieces of that front end....I just didn't want to do all that b/c I like my headlights.

I think it was about 1/2", but varied a little as you cut upward parts of the end.

cool... i have been throwing the idea around in my head, but I don't want to have to get a newer bumper or header panel. Is cutting off the bottom the best way, or can you trim say 1/4' off the top and off the bottom?

No do not trim any top...thats were the mounting screws are, all cutting is on bottom, then you use small zip ties at far outside bottom corners inside grille to the header panel to secure bottom of grille...let me see if I can find the write up...BRB

Yes, skyjacker 2.5" level kit up front and installed the taller (4", I think)block in the rear out of another F350 that my friend had from lifting his , gave the truck a nice stance.

I just bought the grill that is pre-cut on ebay and it mounted right on with no mods. Then I bought the aftermarket lights with adapter and added the 05-07 lights too.

Updated pics with the new headlights installed..........

Here is mine stock


Here it is with the 05-07 modded grill from ebay


With new grill and headlight conversion
