This isn't about 7.3 Vs 6.0, transmissions, or anything with the power train.
Can someone go into detail about what exterior/interior differences exist between the two generations, and what needs to be done to convert to the newer generation.
Here is an example. First generation seems to usually have a chrome front and rear bumper. The cut also appears slightly different. Another thing is the molding. I've read somewhere that the molding on the first generation can be removed. Does the 2nd generation not have molding or does it simply match the color of the rest of the exterior?
