Question Can I convert my 03 to the new models front clip

I was thinking of converting my 03 F250 4 door King Ranch 4x4 to the new 08 look. Can this be done? I already have the bed of an 08 F450 + the 10 lug wheels. I just want to know if I could put the 08 front end. Any info would be great thanks.

You would have to go with a new cab, new doors, new fenders, new bumper, all new body basically. Because the body is completely different then the 99-03 as well as the 04-07 body.

My nieghbors look different then my 2002 doors. Maybe it is the mirrors and the fact that the truck is more box shaped.

Ford isn't that industrious. The doors, bed and even the cab are the same. The hood, fenders, grille, mirrors, tailgate and interior are the changed items.

So it can be done. I think I am going to test drive one today and talk to the parts guy about the parts.

Yes, it can be done...I even think all the mounting points are the same...but don't quote me on that. Just the shapes of everthing all "tweeked".

yeah

heres the biggest problem, the way the front radiator area is layed out and the lack of support in the 6.4 vs the 6.0. It would take a lil engineering to support the radiator and stuff.
