06 front end on an 01??? Has anyone tried to do this???

I have a 2001 F-250 and i was just woundering if the 06 front end would fit on the 2001??? from the research i have done everything will work but you just have to hard wire the head lights. is this true?

Ive heard the same thing. I read that everything like the fiberglass headlight/grill support even has to be swapped. Basically it seems to be an entire front clip swap.

You can buy pigtails so you don't have to hardwire the headlights but they're like $40 or $50 each when I priced them. I know that's not a whole lot but it seems high for some pieces of wire.

I swapped mine, you have to change the header panel so the headlights and grill will bolt in properly, and I got the headlight pigtails at my buddys parts store, he did some checking and found them for 18 bucks a piece.

They sell kits for this. You will have to change the grill, bumper, headlight support and headlights. If you dont do it all it will look really strange, You can use your stock bumper but you will have to trim a few inches on the bottom of the grill to make it fit. Alot of the vendors sell the kits to do this but its not cheep.

Do not buy a "kit" off the internet, there is no use when some of the vendors here can supply the parts you need and you can use ebay.

You'll need a bumper, grill, headlight, chrome tow hooks, header panel, headlights and headlight pigtails to do a complete and "correct" swap.

Then sell all of your used stuff on ebay and make a little more then half your money back.

There are at least 2 members on this site that have done the complete change over. Quite a few more that have just changed the grill or headlights.
