    Default 07-08 Conversion help

    I did quite a few searches with no helping results. I was wondering if anybody has or might know if it's possible to do an 07-08 front end conversion on an 04 without welding or fabrication. I absolutely love the front of my truck but I would love to see the conversion done.

    Honestly I am not positive...

    but I think that is impossible because it is an entirely different body itself.
    It would not be as easy as changing an 01 front end into an 05, because it is not guaranteed that the size dimensions of your truck could support the weight or size of the new front end components

    Good luck in your search though, I'm sure there are some guys that know more about this

    the new ones are wider and taller in almost every dimension on the exterior, plus a whole new chassis that from the ground up will have completely different body attching points/bolts
