Hey guys,

So I have a 2005 Magnum R/T and for a while now I've been wanting to switch out the front end for the more angular more modern front end. So my question is, do I just need to switch out the front end, or the whole hood, front end, front side exterior panels and headlights? If you've ever done a switch I'd appreciate some pointers.

Thanks.

you mean the 2008 front end or the SRT front end?
2008 front


2008 SRT front


2007 SRT front

You just need the front fascia and your done. Everything matches up, you need to look for 05-07 srt. You will also need the top and bottom grilles fog light bezels. belly pan, some will say you can use the one you have now. Now if you want to so the 08, you will need the upper radiator support, fenders,lights,hood,headlight grommets, fascia too.

I believe it's the one on that second link you posted. Is that the one I'll need to replace the fenders, lights, and all that jazz for?

I like the 05-07 SRT Magnum front fascia the best out of all LX-based cars

but if you get the '08 front fascia, think about doing it as a wide-mouth upper grill and leave the lower open grill as is. that'll look killer.

just a suggestion

I've seen some like that and yea it's pretty Boss. Problem is I prefer the 05-07 headlights but I want the 08 front. Does that seem doable? I know the 08 headlights are smaller so it might not be.

anything is doable, but that'll take a LOT of cutting and fabrication (to make the headlights work) and welding (fenders) ..... it would be a ton of work
