05 and up front end conversion

I was wondering if anyone has any pics of an 05+ front end conversion on an older truck? is it difficult?? I have been looking into doing it on my 03, but dont know if I would keep it all red or do the chrome grille, chrome bumper with the body colored filler between the bumper and grille..
all help is appreciated..

I believe Rancho makes a coil over conversion for your truck so you might want to look into that some.

no problem!! I was thinking of doing that also... I want to buy a new one with the 6.4 but have to wait a couple of years..so updating the front fascia should hold me over!
