Re: Late Model Front End Conversion

Is there any updates on the parts list?
I would really appreciate any help/resource for this Mod.
I really like the look of the front end of the 2008 and up but I hate to get rid of my van just for that.
thanks,
John

Re: Late Model Front End Conversion

Good job there.

I always enjoy differing opinions and directions. Personally I would be wanting to change my newer style back to the classic pre-2008 look. When I first saw the 2008, I thought it looked like the south end of a horse going north. I couldn't imagine what Ford designers were drinking. I still think that.

Re: Late Model Front End Conversion

Sorry but I have to agree with Jeffery on this one...I'm kinda used to the new models and the Aluminess bumper makes a huge difference though. All I really want are the brakes

Re: Late Model Front End Conversion

I got the best of both worlds. I have the new 2008 front end as built from the factory but my van has the old curved dash board. I'm not sure if all 2008's were made this way but I like the older curved dash.
