I need some feedback/pointers
 
I went to a parts vendor today(Local car dealer) and i wanted to see if i needed anything else for my front bumper conversion(converting an 05 to an 08) here's the Parts/parts#/price they gave me. And they're giving me a 15 percent discount after i order these.

Front bumper/68033744AB/500.20
*Passenger headlight/55157484AH/895.85(sheesh)
Driver Headlight/55157485AG/678.85
Front reinforcement/5166082AB/119.19
Grille/1DF491X8AB/331.84

*can anyone explain why the passenger headlight is more expensive?

Due to how much the HID headlights cost for the 08 should i just go aftermarket?

And also i got a quote on the SRT8 intake manifold

SRT8 Intake/5037510AK/1425.00 should i buy a new one or go find a used one?

what is the "front reinforcement"? When i did my 08 conversion the 08 bumper bracket was only like $35! Its only a piece of flimsy plastic that bolts to the frame and contains the temp sensor.

those prices are ridiculous too......


try car-part.com, justforjeeps.com and moparpartsamerica.com If you just want the 08 hid look...you can get 08 replica hid lamps for $160 shipped from am-autoparts.com

Maybe them mean some brackets? That's odd

I know, i doubt i'm going with the dealer i went to even if i have a better discount. The front reinforcement is the metal crossmember that goes underneath the bumper. Its bent on my car from a truck backing into my car.

the passenger light is more expensive because it has the autoleveling controls for both lamps...

Could you link me to their website or could they ship to NC?

Oh ok haha. new cars are pretty expensive to what i'm used to. 91 camaro parts are pretty cheap. But building that and my jeep will be pretty fun and worth the money dropped into them.

From what ive read, the SRT mani is only good for 3hp (or was it cfm?) Either way, not much.
