96 with 2010 front nose

My Google skills are failing me. Could Someone please point me to a post. Where I can study up on how to swap the old nose for the new. According to wiki. Both are 4th gen so I sort of imagine it could only be changing doors, hood, fender, bumper etc... but ive been wrong before Lol.

I recall someone on here building a tow rig that was an E350/F350 hybrid with a 2008-2014 nose. If I remember correctly the whole front end was replaced because it was not a direct bolt on change.

I remmeber a guy here doing it as a project with his son. And that it was mostly bolt on/easy swaps, except for the hood release or hood latch.
About a year ago.

Sourcing the parts probably won't be cheap. There was @10+ on my local Craigslist a while back, that was wrecked in the back and engine and transmission removed and the guy wanted $500. I briefly considered it, but I just haven't grown into liking the new front end.
