Anyone ever did a 2012 front bumper conversion? Level of difficulty?

Bump it up. Someone has to know a little something about this.... Are the widths the same and can the an 05 grill fit between the the humps? Would like a bumper with the fog lights installed at the corners.

i've seen a picture of a truck local to me but never seen it in person or know what it takes to put it on, looks like the fit is just a bit off around the headlights though.

Thanks, yeah it looks like he had to trim the grill down to keep the headlight - bumper gap minimal. Great look, really clean truck. With a modified trim panel it might do the trick.

You also might PM username DrPepper, saw his truck in ROTM this month and he's done the conversion. Looks like it fits tight against the grille and leaves a bit of space under the headlights

I saw a nice setup on the riff raff page. Look under customer rides for the sweet maroon one. It looks like the gap is minimal if you use the 04 style grill. Here are some pics of the the back of a bumper I saw on Craigslist. This guy only wanted $1100 for it!!!

If that is the case, I know ebay sells a 99-04 bumper that looks just like the 05-07 grill but fits with the 99-04 bumpers.
