My 99 F350 build-going under the knife

I have decided to give the ole girl a face lift and full body makeover. going to do the '08-'10 front end swap and tailgate/lights/mirrors etc...new wheels/tires...possibly more lift in the distant future. within the next few months i'll be looking for some parts...and my stock '99 parts will be for sale once im finished.

**Im not in a hurry to buy parts...just want to put the word out. if you've got a good deal on something i need...im likely to scoop it up.

needed:

08-10 parts-
-hood
-fenders
-grill
-headlights
-front bumper
-fog lights
-mirrors
-rear bumper
-tail lights
-tailgate
-cab roof lights (whole set w/wiring...not just covers)

*body parts can be any color. grill can be chrome or painted. any lights that are already smoked is a plus..because thats probably the route i'll go.

thanks and i'll keep the thread updated with the progress of the build.





^ theres some "before" shots. my fenders/hood/grill/headlights/and front bumper are all in great condition and will be for sale once i've completed my swap.

not really going to do the full black out deal...mainly bc im not too big on black wheels...however i love the look of smoked lights on a white truck. cab lights, 3rd brake, and whatever else i can make LED is gonna be LED. still contemplating on painting the grill or leaving it chrome. also havent decided on wheels yet.

Subscribing. I'm also collecting parts to do the same. I already have the tailgate and bumper. I'd live to know if you find any where to buy any of the needed parts at a good deal.

just my 2 cents... black the grill, and everything else you listed, chrome/alum wheels... no matter the main color, looks great that way!

yea i cant wait either. i've had so much other stuff going on the past few months...(first child, built new deck on house, yada yada yada)...that my truck has really been on the back burner. i'm excited to see it come back to the upper end of the priority list.
