08-10 front end conversion

Thinkin bout it I want fender flares on the front and the look of a newer truck would be cool. I'd use F450/550 fenders so it'd have factory flares. Chrome grille and bumper for sure. Whatcha think???

I am trying to do it for the least amount of money retaining quality. Best I have found is partstrain for fenders, ebay for hood(ram air fiberglass, cheaper than stock hoods), bumper is hard to find(havent found one yet for less than 400.

Hmmm...if the fiberglass ram air hood is more then... I am going with 450/550 fenders and I'm sure those won't be easy to find either way. The research continues
