Certifit.com

Check and see if there's a location near you. High quality, OEM quality parts for really really good prices.


You'll need 04+ header panel, 01+ headlamps and corners, 04+ grille, and 04+ hood. ALong with some small miscelanious little parts like screws, j-nuts, and don't forget the headlight sliders(what secures the lamps to the header panel).

It's a fairly easy and straight forward swap really....just about 10 total bolts, then put those 10 bolts back in and it's done. Really straight forward.

I'd do a lot of shopping here, people are always selling stuff dirt cheap in the classifieds. I have that exact same grille and I haven't had any luck "giving" it away, and its a mint OEM ford part.

The King of highjacking threads strikes again!


haha I kid I kid

But is there not a sticky with this?
For all of the sliders and little stuff (excluding nuts and bolts), you might just want to go to Ford and get them. It will be alot easier than screwing around at a junk yard.

PM me if you want to get rid of your bumper

Wow triple post, that must be some sort of record
