Where did you get the 05 update for your truck or what did you get to make it that way and what did you modify to make it work

NO as long as the old ones are in good shape they can be reused, I would also upgrade your GPR to the Stancor relay!!

Just from the sig pic it looks like a 99-04 bumper, 02-04 heads/parking lamps & '05+ grille (which I believe it needs to be trimmed at the bottom by an inch or so to fit the bumpers used from 99-04).

There are lots of them available for 7.3L, are there any specific brands one should purchase over others? Any brands to stay away from?

they are alittle tuff to get out use a DEEPwell and make sure u have a swivel socket for the back valve cover and u can use some tubing to put ontop of the gp and pull them out

There is a harness under each VC that plugs into the main harness in the valley of the engine. It is this connection that comes loose. The clips can be purchased at Ford only.
