My conversion kit consisted of a bunch of signatures, and 60 monthly payments LOL

That swap looks like a LOT of work, finished product looks pretty good though. I would have went with the harley lights though.

It would be funny to hear a rattler 7.3 pull up with the 08 front clip on it.

It'd get a WTF, for sure LOL

That seems like ALOT of money for some tin brackets and self tapping screws.

then you still have to spend 2k on the sheet metal, bumper, grill etc + paint

They are made out of quality steel... Who would use tin?this kit cut the time of doing a conversion by more than half... I did one without it before I found it. plus you cant even tell when you look under the hood if you dont know any better. It's very clean. If you want to put hours and hours into fitting brackets be my guest. It's not that easy though, look at the write ups from the guys that did it without it. For less than 2500 looks like you have a10 year newer truck. If thats what you want its worth every penny. I love my 7.3 but i like the newer nose... Best of both worlds as far as I'm concerned.
