Re: Convert old vans to the new front end

I think air coming in is not as big of an issue as getting it out of the engine compartment. There just isn't that much space for air to escape.

Go Rhino products used to make one. They had a photo of my 98 E3450 on their web site for a while but it's gone. Try emailing them or check for a used one on Ebay or Craigslist.

Convert old vans to the new front end

When I saw the new E series vans I HATED it but in the last month or so, and looking at all you guys new lifted vans with Aluminess front bumpers the new style has really grown on me. I think Im going to wait maybe a year or so and then scour the local junkyards. I live in San Diego and about 30 miles from here is the border. On the US side there is a massive area on the border that must have over 100 junkyards. Maybe find a van thats been totalled in a rear end ?

Im sure its just a bolt on project but we'll have to see

Re: Convert old vans to the new front end

I believe the doors are different, as are the mirror bases, so that leads me to believe that the fenders as they align to the doors will be different.

Re: Convert old vans to the new front end

Door are the same.

Changes for the '08 body style are front fenders, bumper, hood, grill, headlights, and radiator support. You will also need the upper block-off plate above the radiator where the air intake is.

Yes, from what I can tell it should be all bolt-on.
