08 Conversion?

Has anyone thought about or looked into doing an 08 conversion? I am about to tackle the complete front end conversion to include aftermarket bumpers. Since I am doing this, I was wondering if I should jump in with both feet and do the 08 front end. It looks like the only other major change would be the front fenders? Or am I completely missing something?
