I think you need the 05 bumper brackets and you gotta bend them to fit.

Hey, I'm new here so hi to everyone!

I just received have a 01 FX4 as my 1st. car and I would like to make a 2006 front conversion. Any one of you have a exploited part diagram of the 2006 look?

Also if i buy this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/06-07...Q5fAccessories

Will be all the stuff that I will need to make the conversion (i know fasteners & lights too but talking about parts)?

Thanks 4 your help!

i'm not completely sure. maybe the mounts, or the bumper itself. the one on the link looks just to be a cover.

Do you have any picture of it?
I already looked @ ebay but always appeared the same parts.

Ok and what about using the 01 bumper but changing to 06 - 10 grill?
Is it possible?
Will everything fit ok?

I believe that I will only need:
  1. Header Panel
  2. Grill
  3. Hood

anyone?

Yes you can do the 04+ grille and 01-03 bumper

2004-2011 are all the same.

I have a 2008 grille and a 2003 chrome bumper
