08+ front conversion
 
Here we go guys, some pics of my front 08+ conversion mod, plus info.

Besides the front bumper cover, headlights, grille and air dam, most parts like screws and such can be reuse from your 05-07. The diagram below shows what additional parts you will need to make this conversion.

You also need # 3, part # 04806226AA, 6 of them
Also the actual front bumper part # is 68033744AB


Numbers 10, 15 and 24 you don't really need. But I would recommend them for a tight fit. ;) Number 25 is the same hardware that attaches the 05-07 air dam to the bumper, but I think you will need an extra one. Im not sure because I've got all of those plastic parts new. Any questions, feel free to PM me. :thumbsup:

It wasn't as expensive I thought it would be... Ebay, is definitely your friend!
Very easy to do, anyone with a garage can do it without breaking a sweat. I really love the 08+ look and of course, those awesome OEM HID headlights. :D

BTW, I wanna thank Scott for the info on the HIDs and Mario for fixing a lousy paint job.

JG ROCKS!!! :thumbsup:
Cheers

awesome Fabs!!!!!!

One question-did your fender liner holes line up on the non-srt bumper? The very last hole on my srt bumper didnt line up. I just drilled a new hole in the fender liner and then used the plastic rivet. Not a big deal...just curious/

Your welcome for the help by the way. It was my pleasure. I love my lights as well.

Man! Scott dude. You know your shit.. LOL Yes, I forgot to mention that I had to make new holes on the bottom of each fender liner. Very easy, I use a punch plier tool. :p
