I have 500 in mine. That includes paint but I didn't go with the 05 bumper. Just the top piece of the 05 bumper is 300 new from the dealer. You'll be around 750 depending on what you go with and if its oem or aftermarket. I spent about 3 hours total on my swap.

I've been working through the numbers myself. LMC Truck has all the OEM pieces at a reasonable price. (the upper piece at powerstrokeshop.com is only $190) everything adds up though.

from LMC (to do it right)
chrome bumper (with freight) $325
hardware and installation kit $300
upper cover $300
chrome grille $220


if anyone else knows of any place that's less expensive, i'd like to know myself as well.

!

Bumpers and grills around here in a salvage yard are about 300 for both. If your patient you can get one in the same color of your truck.

That's the route I'll end up going as well. Cut chrome grille from feabay, 05+ Heads & harness. Grille - $365 shipped, harness $69 shipped & budgeting $200 for heads, leaves it just under $650.
