2006 to 2008 conversions with pics

Hey guys, thought i would keep ya updated on the process.. HCO has an in depth sticky on this in the 7.3 section, and Extreme has one too... i will only try to focus on the things that are a bit different or, at least i did different..... Special to thanks to those two for the great threads, and the much advice over the last month.

Already did the rear, tailgate, tail lights, bumper, there is already "how to" do tailgate thread, tail lights thread, and mirror thread. Thanks so much to those who went first and left the good info...


For the front, tear it down, fenders, hood, grille, bumper, the fiberglass grille support and headlights, the wiper cowl, wiper motor and transmission .. all of it


Next should be the fender install.... but first i wanted to prep the frame for welding because i have a friend helping me this week do frame work.. the bottom line is an 08 bumper needs to mount 2 inches lower then a 99-07, some guys have cut the frame different ways... I am going to mount this bad johny, so I am trying to do a professional custom fab:
Road Armor Stealth for 2008-10 Superduty

So to do this, i cut off the frame plates to expose bare frame: this is how the end of an 08 frame looks, they dont have the plates welded on like we do, an 08 has half a plate and its bolt on, not welded...:

The plate i ground the welds and knocked off:

and this is the bracket that will make the end of my frame match up to the road armor, need to mount it about 1" lower then flush with the top of the frame, It is sitting on frame upside down right now, just so i could show it, the top is open and would not rest on frame as it is right now, so i just flipped it upside down to give a general idea... i dont think i will have to notch the frame at all, just weld this bracket underneath witch provides 2" lower mounting holes, the top of the road armor bumper should sit flush on the top of the frame rails( ie. inside top of bumper will be resting on frame rails) then box and gusset it:




Thats where i left off, my friend and i will be welding this week, until he gets free time, i will jump to installing the fenders next, over next few days, will keep ya posted if anyone is interested...

Very excited to see this . I am still thinking about doing this as well . I want to change the inner fender supports too so that I don't have to shim the fenders either .

Thats a really good idea, but they are like welded in soooooo many spots it would take forever to get them off, i thought long and hard which route to go
