It just depends 99-04 trucks were relatively the exact same bodystyle.......Just headlights changed.........then the 05-07 trucks had different grilles front bumpers and headlights all together then the 08's changed completely!

the front clip changed on the 08's but the cab, doors and bed (sans tailgate) look almost identical to the outgoing 07.

Personally it looks like they took an 07, revised the inside of the cab, put a new front clip and tailgate and called the truck all new.

It's about the same for all the companies tugas, that's just how the pick-upps do it, I'm not complaining, it keeps their value for longer because the styling doesn't become obsolete as quickly, and you're gonna get more responses here, these ford guys turn over threads like nothin I've seen before, especially the 7.3 forum

I don't think what ford is doing by just changing little things is a bad thing. It keeps things fresh, yet doesn't change the WHOLE truck every other year so you feel horribly outdated. The super duty body style works, and if they can keep selling trucks like they do, why make HUGE changes, when you can just keep it fresh and have people still love it.

Yeah gotta agree with Matt on this one. The 04-07 Harley's may not be 08's but we can all admit they look good. You cant really say that about an 04 Lexus, or Mercedes. Even an 01 still looks good, all you have to do is keep you're truck clean.
