There is a guy on this forum that went from the 2011 to the 2013-2016 and if I remember right it was $$$ (I am thinking he said something like 4k). In your case it would be even more expensive. You would probably have to do the whole front clip (fenders, hood, grill, fascia, etc). Since you're going across 2 generations (from WJ to WK2) I don't know how well things would fit (without heavy customization). By the time you did it, and customized it to fit good (as there is no way it would be easy - it never is), it would probably be cheaper to just trade in your Jeep on a newer one.
I think a more reasonable option would be to just change out the headlights. StrongJeff has a build thread "Project Six Shooter", one of the things he did is put some cool halo style headlights on his 2008. It is probably worth a look to see if you like that look.
