2008 F250 to 2006 F250

I hate the 6.4 front end
I see people talking about putting 08-10 front clips on their 06's so has anyone ever swapped their front ends for the older body style????

It would be much easer to swap to an '11-'12 front end. An '05-'07 front end would seriously devalue your truck.

I'm not too sure thats even possible. I did a couple 08 conversions and the main support that the fenders bolt to is a couple inches higher on the 08. I had to put spacers on top of that support to lift the fenders to the correct height. You would somehow have to lower the support I suppose.

Your crazy! Get a different grill or color match it to your liking. I wouldn't go older, it will just make selling it a big ordeal because why the heck would you out older parts on a newer truck. It will look fishy

The headlights look like fish tanks and the whole grille attached to the good drives me nuts but, I've survived 3 years guess I will try smoking the lenses and changing the grill.

Ill agree with you, the 04-07 has a nicer looking nose, with the hood line and lights.

I have never been found of the big headlights on the 08 +

I do however like everything else about my 08 more then my 06, so its the price i pay.

I find the 08-10 the best looking of the superduty era. Wasnt a fan of the grill attached to hood but ive grown to like it more.

Any grille styles you like? Rbp? Older oem grilles? Older aftermarket grilles? Royalty core? Smittybilt? Those might help your disliking the oem 08-10 grille.

Many different choice headlights, I agree, the oem headlights are terrible, not much better smoked either. But with so many aftermarket halo/angel, projector, hid led, maybe look for a whole new set. I like the ones on my truck
