SEMA Build Frontend Poll!!

Hey guys,
Im building my truck up for SEMA this year. Truck is a 99 F-250 that will have a 14" standard height lift, 44" tires, and a compound turbo Cummins conversion (either a 12v or a CR, still back and forth). Anyway, I cant decide what to do with the frontend. I want the truck to relate to the general diesel public but still draw as much attention as possible. What do you guys think?

I should also note, the truck wont have ANY chrome on it whatsoever reguardless of what frontend I do. Main color will be white with some ghost real flames and my logo in majenta on the side. I had previously planned to do the '05 conversion so I already have all those parts and they are actually installed. Now Im just second guessing myself, lol.

if it was a 350 DRW i'd say go with the 650...

i personally like the 05-07 front end the best, and you already have the parts...


but the 08-10 conversions are getting popular too

Post up some pics of the conversion you've already done. Personally, I am fond of the 05-07 look. Not sure how it might look without any chrome on it, though.

I can def post up some pics. I have the H-bar grill that is scuffed and ready to get painted to match when the rest of the truck gets painted. I also have the Harley lights on. Had the truck apart so long, Im almost ready to change my mind to the '08 or F650, lol.

How about be the first to do a 2011 swap? Looks like the sheet metal is close enough to work
