05-07 Fab Four bumper on 04???

I smacked a doe with my 04 F250 and now need a new front bumper, grille and header panel. Since it's all trashed I figured now is the time to do a 05-07 conversion. I could put a stock 05 bumper and brackets back on it but with our deer population in SC I want something tougher than the thin factoy one. I'm going to try and get in touch with Fab Fours but I wanted to ask if anyone has tried it. Here is the bumper I'm thinking about installing

Fab Fours Part FS05-A1252-1 - Pre-Runner Heavy Duty Winch Bumper in Black Powder Coat with Lights and D-ring Mounts - Fits 2005 to 2007 Ford F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550 and Excursion - 4 Wheel Parts

i just put an 99-04 "ranch hand" style bumper on my 06 today, lol

mounting is exactly the same, if your going to do a complete 05-07 swap header and all it will bolt up fine.
If you stick with the 99-04 header and grill your going to have a gap below and infront of the grill area.

Thanks man, that's what I was wanting to know. I was thinking Ford didn't change the frame, and those heavy bumpers seem like they'd have their own heavy mounts. I have a 05-07 header panel, grille and HD headlights ordered.
