Q: 2008-2010 Front End Converstion

I've been looking at doing the 2008-2010 Front End Converstion to my truck in the Future, and I was wondering were there some threads I over looked, or can anybody put some insight in on this?

car-stuff.com
*fenders
*hood
*head lights
*tail lights
*side view mirrors (I got the power ones and spliced them in, its easy)

E-bay
*front bumper
*front bumper brackets
*OEM grill (if its not OEM it wont come with the ford emblem and it won't have the "Super Duty" stamped in the top.
*OEM tailgate (I found a junk yard near my place that was selling one, if not its not hard to find one that will ship, the tailgate is pretty pricey)
*OEM wiper linkage (again from a junk yard, its light so shipping isn't that bad)

Ford dealership (you can price check/order using fordparts.com just make sure you are ordering the right thing)
*fender emblems (pricey)
*rear bumper with step pad(the bumper comes as a 3 piece set)
*grill supports(defiantly need thees for support they go on the back side of the grill)
*driver side "only" tailgate mount(you swap out yours for an 08-2010 to mount the new tailgate)

If you have back-up sensors, your old ones WILL work you just need to order a bumper that has the holes, and the plastic ring that they go in for an 08-2010
and my reverse lights where not plug and play, I had to use the bulb and socket from that little corner light in my old 04 head light set up. and lengthen some weirs
