08+ nose conversion

I think i caught a picture in one of the diesel mags about a guy who did an 08 conversion on an older (99-04) body style. seems like a lot of work, but i think it'd be worth it over the 05 look. anyone here done it, or have any info on it?

i had the dealer do it, they also did the interior and put a new motor in for me. it cost me 25000 but it was well worth it.

LMAO at Valet.

If it were me and I wanted a fresh look for the front end I'd just go with the tried and true 05+ front end.

I'd have to say, 25G is quite a bit. any good body shop could have done it for half that. I'd be interested to see what all the sheet metal costs.

i hope you understand i was just being a wise guy. i didn't have a conversion done. i was just reffering to the fact that i traded my 05 in for an 08.
