08 Srt8 front bumper with 05 headlights and grille?

Gotta question..

I found an awesome price on a gentle used 08 SRT8 front bumper cover locally but only problem is that mines is an 05 Limited..

My question is do I necessary need to replace my grill with an 08 to make the bumper fit correctly?? I can shave the headlight bumps off so that my 05's will fit.. The grill is my main concern..

Any thoughts?

Isaac

the grill is the problem. Youll need an 08+ grille...its taller than the 05-07

Re: 08 Srt8 front bumper with 05 headlights and grille?

well...I did the 08+ headlight swap and there was a gap. It may be a little different with the 05-07 headlights and 08 grille

Sorry to be such a lazy Bast especially on my 1st post and b4 anyone says it I know there is a search but this one question answered can help me decide if a srt conversion is right for me.

With that Srt 06 bumper you added, was it an easy Bolt on or did the 06 srt bumper need some customizing? did you also need to purchase the grille and lights to complete the swap?

I am p/u my 05 Limited GC this week and have been wondering about changing the bumper my least favorite thing about this car.

many thanks in advance.
