Face lift Time... QUESTIONS...

Well it has come to that point in time to install some 05-07 HD lights on my 04 EX. I have been toying around with the notion of changing grills as well, but now I have a couple of questions before I can make the final choices.

1. If I swap out for an 05 header panel (rather than hacking the 04) in order to get a perfect fitment of the new HD's, am I forced to make any other changes to the bumper and such?

2. If I am able to utilize the 05 header panel and HD lights, does it force me to use an 05 grill or can I stick with an 04 grill.

The thing is, I would prefer not to hack the 04 panel in order to fit the lights correctly, but if i cant simply swap out the header panels I just may have to.

Any input or suggestions, would be greatly appreciated...

i just went through this on my 04'. the 04' header panel can not be used with the 05' grills. the 05' grill do not fit the 04' bumper. if you change header panel you pretty much have to change grill and bumper as well. BUT WAIT! there is a solution to this madness! i would suggest hack your 04 header panel its easy and the lights fit perfect. then you can go on ebay and buy an 05-07 style grill to fit the 04 header panel. they custom make them so they fit the 04 bumper as well. they have choices. so my suggestion is hack header to fit lights and go on ebay to get a grill that fits that header panel and fits the 04 style bumper as well. 2004 f250 grill | eBay

that is a link to the grills your lookng for on ebay
