Re: 08+ front conversion

Wow - that's cheap (considering).

I'm not going until the end of the year (want to take in the New Year's fireworks on Sydney Harbor) but if people want me to bring back some repeaters let me know.

Re: 08+ front conversion

I really like the end result. Very clean, discrete yet distinctive.
I was initially planning to make a conversion from my 06 Overland to an 96 SRT-8 front but now a conversion to an 08 SRT8 seems like a better option.
The one thing that bothers me is that it seems that you can get an 08 SRT-8 front bumper cover at less than 150 bucks from mopar genuine parts dot com. Does that sound right to everybody ? Been emailing them and calling for two days without success.

Re: 08+ front conversion

that is not the 08 SRT bumper. I saw that about 6 months ago and ordered it. They called me to let me know it was a mistake on their part. No idea why it wasnt corrected yet? There were some 05-09 SRT bumpers on ebay for $499.....no idea on shipping to Kosovo though........yuck

Re: 08+ front conversion

all you need for the 08 conversion is the 08 bumper support, 08 grill, 08 bumper, and 08 headlamps. Please also remember to do the SRT bumper conversion you will need-

- Bottom Black Grill Insert ( Item # 5030066AB )
- Chrome Strip Insert For Bottom Of Bumper Grill ( Item # 5030069AA )
- Support Bracket ( Item # 5029991AB )
- Retainer Clips ( Requires 9 ) ( Item # 6503598 )
- Front Bumper Cover Support Extensions ( Item # 5030266AB right & 5030267AB left )
- Front Supports ( Requires 2 ) ( Item # 5030620AA )
- Front Support Bolts ( Requires 4 ) ( Item # 06507668AA or AA1 )

check out this thread as well for all SRT parts

Re: 08+ front conversion

I also suggest this thread if you would like to add the 08-09 oem HID headlamps instead of the stock halogen lamps...
