08+ conversion

I did a search but didnt come up with nothing(if theres already a post about this sorry) Has anyone done the 08+ front end conversion(or front and rear) on there 03-07? I am getting a 06 harley edition when I get home and im thinking about doing this swap. Anyone know if its just a bolt on swap or is there some special fabrication that needs to be done? Post picks if you got them.

Try to get in touch with hco4x4. He did one in the past and also has a thread going with another one he is in the process of doing. He has been super helpfull to other members asking questions about the swap and his last one came out great.

Interested in the conversion myself. Just curious how much $$ is needed and how in depth it is.

Im doing it, ill post the differences if any on the 06 from what HCO has encountered. Total cost in parts, is about $1500 and $500 for paint(im just painting hood and fenders, vice entire truck repaint) but you have to scrub craigslist and ebay constantly. I bought an 08 road armor stealth im going to put on it, so thats another cost... mirrors are the biggest pain in but, cant find a set for less then $450 right now and i hate paying that much for dang mirrors. Its not bolt on by any means, a lot of fab'in brackets and such, the front of my frame is getting cut, boxed, and adjusted to hold the road armor 08 stealth..... going to be sick friends...
