08 Overland front-end on 05 Limited
 
I was wondering what would be required to get an 08 Overland front end (upper & lower bumper) onto my '05 Ltd. I'm not looking to change the angle w/the grill & headlights (if this can be avoided).. just the cheapest route possible :D

youll have to do the grille as well atleast. The 08-10 and 05-07 grilles are very different..then theres the problem with the shape of the bumper under the headlamps. You could cut the "humps" off or leave them infront of the lamps. You will aslo need the 08-10 bumper bracket.

Hmmm... So I would need an (08-10) JGC grill, upper bumper cover, lower bumper cover (overland), & bracket?

Does that sound about right? What about headlights? Not really required?

What exactly does 'mounting hardware' consist of?

some plastic pop rivets is about all thats different. theree also may be some small screw but lots just skip it. its not much but you will need a bag of plastic pop rivets and a cheap plastic pop rivet gun. like a harbor freight is a good onme as the gun comes with some riovts.

a quick search here should find the official part number that you can cross reference for the rivets.


if you are anywhere near denver i have all the parts ready to do mine you could see
