front of 05-07 on 00

I have a 2000
and after I do performance work I would like to put a chrome 05-07 front on it
I know they sell them cut for 99-04 but dose it look as good as original
and if not is it money reasonable to just replace the whole front with either a 05-07
or a new 08 front
tell me your thoughts on what would look better
and what do you think cost to do the whole new front would be
thanks I have been thinking about all these mods for months and now I am acutely going to do them and its hard choice

it an be done... i can get you all of it for the 05+ conversion but it would be cheaper if you found the bumper on your own locally... here is the headlight converstion
Stealth Automotive. 2005+ Ford Superduty Headlight Conversion Kit for 99-2007 Trucks

also the 08 front end can be done but your reasily looking at 3k + to do it... its a huge undertaking which requires a lot of fab work and painting to get it done

let me know if you have any questinos

This is what is needed for the 05+ upgrade...

Header panel, grill, bumper, headlight pigtail, head lights, and chrome tow hooks if you really want it to look good. Usually costs under 2,000 to collect everything yourself and do it.

Do those headlights fit right in or do you have to hack up the header panel?

yah you will have to modify your header panel to make them fit or i can get you the head panel of the 05+ SD trucks so it bolts right up
