i was just getting ready to post this question bc i am wanting to do this on my 03 TB i just like the front end of the 08+ better and what got me thinking about it was a guy i work with has an 06 TB but he said the person he bought it from had a front end accident and that they put the new style front end on it...and he is right it looks like an 08+

what all would a guy need? headlight mounting panel and a different steel reinforcement bar? and i know the obvious would be the headlights and grille assembly

will the ss grille assembly fit with the new style LS bumper cover?

No. You would need to buy an SS bumper too with all the components needed.

You can use an SS Grille, LS Headlights, and the 06+ LT bumper, Those will fit together.

If you want the full LT conversion, you'll need the bumper, fog lights (if you don't already have them), the spacer that goes between the bumper and impact bar underneath the grille area, the two plastic mounts for the lower corners, the air deflector that goes underneath the bumper, grille, and headlights. You can also do it with an SS grille and keep your "LS" headlights. I did it that way on my old 02:

Oh, just so you know that is the 06+ LT bumper, not 08+, and the rear bumper was also updated.

Black Rhino Keros, they're discontinued now. I kept them and they're on my SS now.

could you show me what thses might look like, i have an 03 TB LS and was wondering if the ones that came with that model will work with the conversion :confused:

Thanks

They look similar to what is there, but they aren't the same. They're cheap for new ones.

You won't find them on eBay. Here is the complete list of part numbers, but depending on what you start out with it may vary:

Grille:
11609858 nut
15134119 grille
19121420 screen
10357171 emblem
19120219 grille
19121419 screen
15213549 deflector

Bumper:
15787493 brace
15787494 brace
19120213 fascia
15175700 foglamp
15076246 foglamp

I bought a used grille since it was much cheaper that way, but the bumper I didn't want to risk getting damaged in shipping (plus shipping would have been ridiculous). If you start out with an LT that already has fog lights you can reuse them instead of buying new ones.
