3rd Gen Ram Tech2002-2008 Rams: This section is for TECHNICAL discussions only, that involve the 2002 through 2008 Rams Rams. For any non-tech discussions, please direct your attention to the "General discussion/NON-tech" sub sections.
There are a few guys that have done this but it takes a bit of work. Most guys like the older headlights so they stick with the 02-05 look, but nevertheless it can be done.
FYI...02-08 are all 3rd Gen Rams. 4th Gen begins in '09.
You will need everything as stated plus I believe the front bumper as well. Pretty sure everything is a direct bolt on fit with no welding going on, but if there is anything needed, it wouldn't be much.
When replacing your front fenders, the paint isn't going to match, so it's likely that the painter will have to blend the color into the doors and possibly the hood so they match well?? Mostly depends on the color, but most colors have many variations and that can cause noticeable paint discoloration from one panel to the next. i'm sure if your gonna go through with this, your not gonna half *** it at the end.
Maybe try a search and see what you can come up with. There have been a few threads regarding all of what is needed and that may better help you especially if there are pics posted. Many guys talk about doing this, but few go through with it as they find elswhere to spend their money. it's real easy to do..haha
We're working on doing this to my friends 05 diesel right now.
We have fenders, lights, light wiring (just in case), bumper and bumper cap, grille, and we got him a new hood.
The body shop said it should be a direct replacement bolt on deal so here's hoping.
He's waiting on paint quotes but we'll do a diy when we do it all if anyones interested/it hasn't been already been written
