08 front bumper cover and parts.

I know the numbers and sites are here some where but i have lost track of exactly where.

Where can i get the 08 bumper cover and needed parts for an 05 for decent prices?

Basically i am just curious. Should my front bumper ever need replacing or i am graced with $$$ i want to swap them out to do a 08+ front end. BUT, i am going to cut the "bumps" off of the 08 bumper by the head lights and make it work with my 05 headlights because i like them better then the 08 style.

Currently my front bumper looks like ass from rock chips and wear and tear so id like to start saving for a new cover and paint job with some of that amazing ppg ceramiclear paint.

Re: 08 front bumper cover and parts.

you need the cover and the bumper support. The bumper support is only like $30. I got a cheap 08 bumper on ebay for like $75 a year or so ago. The grilles are on ebay now too. But...using the 05-07 lamps...Im not sure you can becasue of the sides of the grille

Re: 08 front bumper cover and parts.

That was going to be the biggest part of the experiment. I was going to start by trying to fit the bumper cover with the 05 grille. If it looks like ass or wont fit at all then i was going to see how an 08 grille fits. If that wont work with the head lights then i will just suck it up and buy 08 head lights. BUT i need to test fit the grille before i trim the bumper humps for the head lights from the 05.

Maybe i can save up and try it this spring or summer.

Re: 08 front bumper cover and parts.

This is all just an idea.

But i did save myself $100 bucks a month but getting a new car insurance policy this week so that will make life easier. It all depends on how things go with this house we are looking at.

Most likely, every plan/want/mod/dream i have right now will be crushed if we get this house. Oh well, a house is alot more important then mods but it does not hurt to ask questions and be educated.

Re: 08 front bumper cover and parts.

Thats what will end up happening eventually. Grab parts as i find deals etc. I really wanna find a way to do it with the stock 05 headlights though, i really dont like the 08+. I just like the contours of the 08+ bumper cover better.
