Another 08+ Front Conversion

HI all, just finishing up my 08 front conversion, still some small things to tidy up for the most part it is done, I have an 05 F350 Harley with 70,000 ,miles, was a theft, so I decided before I purchased it I wanted an 6.0 diesel(going veggie) truck but wanted 08+ front and rear. I could not find Harley vents for a good deal so I painted some to match and put billet pieces in, also picked up a FX4 chrome and painted it to match, as the Harley grilles are pricey too right now. I am picking up some 08+ Harley wheels next week when I return to Dallas, and a rear bumper and tailgate to finish of the exterior. I also just installed 2011 Black leather seats and console, will get pics of those tomorrow hopefully. Anyhow, she has 08+ Harley running boards, and 08+ mirrors also have 08+ Harley door panels on inside. Looking for 08+ dash now to start that conversion and paint to match pieces to look like Harley does. So when I am done in the end it will look like a 09-10 Harley truck but with 2011 seats and full console, as I hear 2013 Harley is coming back, so I may in a year do the 2011+ front and bed to look like a 2013 Harley. Anyhow enjoy the pics.

Looks great. Wish I could afford a 2008 front end for my truck. Maybe some day.

Yea all in all it came out, good I re-welded the frame so it looks factory, I can get both bolts back in the front bumper etc. I could be persuaded to sell the truck if anyone wants Maybe $22,000
