LOL! I cant say I blame her, She did happen to notice the grill and headlights right away Guess I forgot to mention them

Here is a better pic of the bumper you can see the winch bay is pretty huge, houses up to 16.5 Warn and Superwinch.



One thing I am not crazy about is the tabs for the lights on the bar, I am never going to put lights there so I may cut them off. I also plan of fabbing up a plate to cover the winch bay so i have a nice place to stand as well.

You can do it with as few parts as headlights and a grill from an 05, minor trimming of the grill is required to make it fit with 99-04 bumpers. If you do a search on this forum or over in superduty GD you can find a ton of posts.

Thanks for the pic Walt. There's all kinds of room for a winch.

Maybe the wifey is going to get you a winch for your B-day.

Front of the truck gutted. The black brackets on the frame horns is where the new bumper mounts up



2005 header panel mounted up and a dry fir of the 2005 Road Armor bumper.



Harley edition headlights installed. XL grill installed.



So everything went pretty smooth. With exception of the bumper every piece I used was OEM and I am glad I went this route. The parts bolt up perfectly and include all the hardware/speednuts/u bolts that don't generally come with aftermarket stuff.
I dont like the huge logo on the bumper so I will prob cut it out and fab up a piece to cover the hole. Also need to get some lights for the pods.

A big thanks to Clay for the Harley lights, they look dang good.
A big thanks to ED as well, Even in the midst of combining Horizon/y2k Ford parts he was able to get me the XL grill and header panel right before I needed them.
And more thanks to FTE, you guys answered my questions and helped me navigate the conversion, I knew what I was going to do even before I turned a screw

I got my Road Armor bumper thru Top Guns Customz.

Please feel free to ask any questions

dude, looks sweet.

I bought the whole front end take off parts...

it will look so sweet on my rig... really much better then what's on my truck now!


now all I need is a tailgate, I have a rear 08 chrome bumper I plan on installing.

then I'm done on all the mod's this truck will see before I give it to Haylee.

Just pulling up an old post during a search.

I just ordered a Road Armor Titan 2 bumper for my 04 Excursion from Top Gun. They said it should be here in about 3 weeks.
Do you have any install tips for me? And also what type/brand lights did you go with?

Thanks,
Jerry D.
