08 conversion questions.. best way to go?

Well i have started looking around at Parts and so on for my conversion. What do you guys think would be the best way to go about it.

Where could i buy a front clip??? thats what i would like to do.

OR

should i look around and go piece by piece when i see good deals?

has anyone looked into it and found a place you can gt a clip and compared the 2?

thanks guys cant wait to start on this come spring. until then gonna start getting all the pieces to the puzzle.

If your truck is white, just buy a clip, most are white, and you will not have to paint, go to yoru local junk yards, you can get a clip for $1800-$2400. If you piece it you will probably be around $1500 plus paint work, and I don't know about you guys , but its so hard to find a painter that does good work these days and it last for years.

i know i would LOVE a front clip. yes the beast is white.

i tried my local junk yard with NO luck. also been trying to search online to find a place where i could buy one. with no luck yet again.

if i do piece by piece its only gonna be white pieces.


thank you for the input, LMK if you know of a place i could get a front clip.
