Custom front grill

Hey guys and gals, Im currently in the process of changing my truck around (arent we all) and i was wondering if anyone has done a custom front end
i remember a guy swapped his headlights with a bmw X5

i took a pix of my bare front end and then some photo edits , if anyone has ideas please suggest and if you can photoshop feel free to do so :p

Tbh, I don't like either of those. Looks tacky adding a modern front end/copying one and putting it on a ford.

Why not just mod the stock grill and add projector head lamps?

But that's just my 2 cents.

Fit a '52 F1 grill in there.


Someone started one, but didn't finish or hasn't updated their thread if they did.


yea i just dont like the look that everyone has, i want to be different, yes different isnt always better i get that but i just dont like the look,

ive seen that thread about the 50s delivery van conversion, wish they woulda kept going , something i do want to do is fill the sides in like such

here is the bmw

time and tools are there , talent i like to believe so , ive done all my own body work and painted my truck myself, ive also worked with fiberglass in the past so its always an option to just go nuts but i just need some ideas and suggestions, it was my dads idea to just slap a range rover grill in there lol

to be honest i really liked the range rover one.

hey so im prolly gonna go with these with a projector beam in there , also courtesy of land rover ;)

unfortunately it is snowing and too cold to do custom work outside and i am waiting for one of these trucks to roll though my junkyard because 800$ for a pair of these seems foolish when the truck they come on goes $600 in scrap metal,
also what i thought was cool was the fiber werks front end conversion


on a happier note the tail lights are in

Any progress? I'm really interested!

some what
this idea too

water tight

more pix when i get a chance , recently moving in to a 70 by 40 foot warehouse so its been swallowing my time and cash but morre pix later

Let me know on what you decide to do! I have been trying to figure out how im going to change the front end. I already have a idea on doing the back end.

all ths pics are broken now.
