Smile Doing my 01' to the 06'+ conversion!!

Well this is the only picture I have today, I am hopefully getting painted this week just depends on the number of cars that come in step dads shop this week..

I must say everyone, this swap couldn't be easier.. But I will say it did put a big ass dent the size of a hockey puck in my pocket.. But since my step dad is a keystone rep. I got a HUGE discount..

Parts total bill is: $552.45 BUT the new model front end is priceless in my eyes. I also bought the 09 bumper and everything, just didn't get pics of all since it all needs paint.

I know I have the ugly ass mirrors, Will be swapping those soon..

And last but not least.. Question... White bumper? Bedlinered bumper? Which one?

Looks good! Makes me want to do this to mine.... I need to buy a few front body parts anyways so i have been leaning towards doing this. The price tag is the only thing thats keeping me away from it lol.
