05 conversion+ranchhand?

Last friday night, I had an eight pointer run into my truck at 70mph. I showed him what "Built Ford Tough" meant. Anyways, since i'm gonna be needing a new grill, headlights, right fender and door I think i'm gonna do an 05-07 conversion. I wanna put a ranchhand bumper on my truck. My truck is a 2000 f350. Since I will have the 05 grill, will I need to get a bumper for an 05 truck, or will the 2000 bumper fit? Thanks

The 2000 bumper won't fit with the 2005+ grille you would have to trim the grille. Since your replacing it you will have to buy a bumper that fits a 2005+ truck. They mount the same way so it will bolt right up

I have an 01 F250, I have the '05 front conversion. I went with the Harley Davidson lights, a '05 black grill from a fleet model and a Ranchhand frontend replacement for a '05. It fit's great.

7.3Leader - Could you throw out a parts list to make this conversion happen? I have an 02 F250 SCLB that I have been wanting to do this to for years and finally think I am going to pull the trigger this year. I just do not want to get part way into the job and realize I am missing something. Truck looks great.
