Re: FINALLY 08 Front end DONE!!!

Do you have before and after pics? I've never compared side by side to see what the differences are.

Re: FINALLY 08 Front end DONE!!!

This is the best before pic i have. Its from last year when i had my JK wheels on before i sold them.

on the 08 the bottom of the head light is scalloped, the bumper is smoother and more aerodynamic, the grill is deeper or bigger etc.

Re: FINALLY 08 Front end DONE!!!

Did you reused your front bumper bracket support. The part that supports the fog lights and the front bumper cover. Shapes almost like the bumper itself?

Re: FINALLY 08 Front end DONE!!!

I dont know. I had a shop do all the work after my accident. I think its the same but i cant be sure. Your best bet is call a dealership and ask for part numbers for each bummper support.

I dropped my jeep off at the body shop and all i supplied was headlights and grille. They did the rest of the work.

As was said in the other thread, you can only reuse the fog lights. The bracket is cheap, just buy a new one

Re: FINALLY 08 Front end DONE!!!

I did go to the dealer yesterday...match the 2007 and 2008 brackets and verified that the bumper brackets are not the same. I bought the 2008-2010 bracket. I just want this thing done and did not care of paying $98.00 for it.

Re: FINALLY 08 Front end DONE!!!

Whatever part they used, it looks really nice. I can't wait for mines. My Jeep is black, so could probably drive with the parts unpainted. But I will paint soon after the conversion.
