That looks really, really good. Are those mirrors fully functional? Do they power fold and power extend?

When you open the hood, does the grill come up with it as well? I haven't had the chance to see an '08 with its hood open.

I recall the Dodge Rams does that and I always see the fins on the radiator all bent...especially near the bumper where people use the bumper as a step and inadvertently kick the fins on the radiator.

That's off the chain

That's off the chain! I have thought about doing the same thing as well. I am curios how the mirrors matched up and how much body work was required for the 08 front end to line up with the 2003 chasis.

To answer some questions......


Yes the mirrors are fully functional, the hood does open with the full grille,there was no mayor body work to do everything lines up except the bumper mounting where some welding had 2 be done.......i'm still working on the hood cowl(wiper cover) to match, might have 2 make one of fiberglass....??


i will post better pikz.
