08 swap? WHAT ABOUT 11 front end conversion?

so im sitting here pricng out 08 front end conversion and figuring out the best way to go about it. Then thought to myself (GO BIG OR GO HOME!)

Can the 2011 front go on? has anyone really looked into it? has to be close to doing a 2008 front end. IDK

INPUT PLEASE! price would NOT be that much crazier so why not.

I can get you a good deal on a brand new 2010 front clip, includes everything you need to swap... hood, fenders, bumper, grille, headlights, everything. $2,500.

Two weeks or so ago someone posted a link to a 7.3 that had a 2011 conversion on eBay so it is possible. It looked sick!

the front fenders have different lines than the 08-10. The wheel well opening is the difference. Look at a 08-10 and an 11, the part where a fender flare would mount is different on the two trucks, so the front fenders wouldn't match the rear unless you also upgraded the bed to an 11.

The fenders themselves have different lines but were the line flows onto the door I think its still the same.
