05 to 08 front end swap?
 
I'm looking to do a front end swap for my 2005 WK. I want to go to the 2008 style bumper/lights. not the SRT8, just the limited.

so I know I will need:
-headlights
-bumper cover
-grille
-fog lights

things I am not sure of:
-hood?
-bumper beam?
-header panel?
-same type light bulbs?
-retaining my tow hooks in same location?
-radiator shroud/headlight covers?

anybody else done this or compared the differences between the different years? or could I perhaps be so lucky as to find that someone has already done a write-up on this? also switching to the OEM HID projectors would be a huge plus, but I was already able to find the write-up on that one.

yep....the only different parts are the headlights, bumper cover, grill and the little plastic bumper support bracket. Fogs, hood etc etc are the same
