LMC 05-07 Conversion

Hey all...just curious to see if anyone has bought all the parts for a 05-07 front end conversion from LMC truck parts? I have an 04 and I would like to do the conversion. I checked on their website last night and unless I am missing some parts it appears I can get everything bought for around 1K. All OEM parts. I live close enough to pick everything up so I save some on freight. Does that seem like a good deal? Other thoughts?

I am pretty sure the parts from LMC are not OEM parts. I got in a accident last winter and needed a new front bumper. I bought mine from LMC and the quality was decent. Definitely not the same quality as a OEM bumper but that is why it costs much less.

LMC is NOT OEM parts. They are not the cheapest thing out there but they are not OE. Just an FYI

Ok, good to know...so the best option is still to find the parts from a salvage yard? The parts aren't OEM but are they of enough quality that they will last and look good? Is $1K still a good deal on everything for the conversion even though they aren't OEM?

I have bought parts from LMC and the quality is decent. You can get stuff off ebay for a whole lot cheaper than that. Also check out the classifieds on here and you can find some really good deals sometimes. 1k seems way too expensive to me for a conversion.

If you are not in a hurry and you look around for some deals, you can get it for around 5-600.

As far as the headlights go, look for eagle eye headlights. They are excellent quality and are WAY cheaper than OEM.

Good luck
