taillights, tailgate, mirrors, and emblems
Flares are optional, if you like them.

I would get the 04+ header panel, lights and hood from Certifit then go to Ford or a junk yard if you get lucky enough and get the rest of the stuff. That will be your cheapest route.

imo...get a price on a '08 fog light valence...or shoot....even an '08 non-fog light valence. I understand the price is very reasonable for being a dealership purchased item.

This weekend i can confirm for you if you need a new hood latch. If you need that answer sooner, pm that guy in PA. For some reason his screen name has phased my brain right now. lol. He's the one with the '04 and the modded '03 powerdome hood.

I wonder what a color matched '06+ grille would look like on there...
