I wrecked my truck and am trying to decide if I just want to have the insurance company fix it or if I want to convert the fron to an 05 and newer look. Ok guys, heres the question. What do I need to convert the fron of my 04 to an 05. I know the grille, bumper and lights but is there anything else? I know the blocker beam (cross member) behind the front bumper is different but not sure if it needs replaced. Here is a picture of my 04 to give you an idea of what I'm looking at. Just weighing my options. Thanks for any input.

you'll need the header panel and i'm pretty sure you need the new brackets for the bumper too.

Heh, I'm just gonna get one of the rugged bumpers for an 05, and get the grill. Don't "Need" to change the lights, but If I come across a good deal on some, I'll be quick to snatch it up.

according to a retailer who sells a complete kit for ~$1500 USD, they supply the following for the conversion:

17B749,17B750,17B984,17B985,17A861 x 2 Complete set of bumper brackets

17757 Chrome Bumper

17D957 Cover between Bumper and Grille (This item is paint to match)

17626 Valance

8200 Grille

8A424 Grille Header Panel

13008 x 2 Both Headlamps

14S411 x 2 Harness to connect new bulbs which are included as well

17A385 License Bracket

Plus 8 nuts, 8 Screws and 4 Reatainers


they do not include '05 fog lights if you want them too it' an extra $90, so probably just the lights themselves.

I found the rugged bumper for under $700 Bumper On ebay. The grill I want is $125, and the lights ARE optional. Like I said, I'll wait on the lights till I find a steal.

So, you can switch for under a grand, if you don't want the complete switch.

BTW, Keep an eye on ebay, I saw the chrome bumper with the header and valance go through for $250. I planned on sniping that auction, but lost track of time. :doh: :(
