Looks good, everytime i see the 05+ swap I want to do it more and more! Are you going to paint the upper valence on the front bumper? Do those covers come off the mirrors so you can paint them also? How much do you have wrapped up in it?

thank you!

yeah i have been wanting to do this for a long time now.

i plan on painting it when i get the whole truck painted in a few months. it is getting a new bed, rear CC door, cab corner, front fender, and maybe more new doors if money allows.

i picked up the grill and headlights for 256 shipped from rock auto, bumper for 100 off craigslist, and the header panel and fog lights (which are the wrong ones) for 170. so all together i have a smidge over 500 into the whole swap and couldnt be happier!



I also installed the cab lights myself and that was not fun at all lol. the mirror covers do come off, i just dont know how yet so they are staying white for the time being

How'd you wire the mirrors?
I know how to, I mean, as far as running the wires for turn and clearance from the passenger side, where'd you put them?

I ran the wires through the door on both sides, and through the rubber boot, then there is a gap in the corner of the cab that you can run wires down to a little hole at the bottom right by the floor. i did that for both sides and for the passenger side i ran them up through that kick panel then behind the glove box and up under the dash to the other side. i cheated and used quick connects because they arent going to be exposed to the elements

What do you mean you got the wrong header panel? I thought you didn't have to replace the header panel to do the swap?

Well, that's debatable on a budget.

I know you can just trim the stock header panel can't you? Is the header panel just a bolt in piece or does it take modification to fit in our trucks?
