Fresh look 2002 to 2007 front end upgrade!!

Did a little updating last weekend!!

I found a front clip from a 2007 F250 and decided the original Super Duty frontend (99-04) has become a bit of a tired look...

Since I had the header panel, I simply needed to buy a pair of headlight adapter pigtails from Riff Raff and voila!!

I don't have a ton of pics of it yet, been too busy working. I think the casual observer wouldn't even notice but I think it gives her a fresh new look!!! And, YES, I have washed it since this photo was taken - TWICE!!

I don't think I have ever seen 16 mpg in this thing!! 14 highway was best I remember, but I never really baby it either. Usually 11-12 all-around MPGs. I looked closer at the grille and it looks like someone tried using steel wool to clean it - butthead. So it is not a priority but I will be looking for a new grille at some point...

While I love the 2005-2007 front end upgrade, I have always wanted a brushguard and I recently found one on craigslist for a great price so I grabbed it.

Before the nasty weather rolled in tonight my son helped me get it mounted!!

Thanks, bro, didn't I send you a pic???

Does anyone know if the tow hooks are different between the 2002's and the 2005's? I only ask because the vertical bars on this sit right up against the tow hooks.

I think when I get the chance I will loosen the bolts where the brackets attach to the bumper and see if I can't shim them out even a little...

I had to really shove them in there between the bracket and the tow hook. This brushguard is for the 2005-2007 and that's the front end I have but the truck and hooks are 2002.
