Is it possible to have the crossbar removed off of my TB front and maybe put in the newer TB headlights and grill without that crossbar? Is this a really detailed job or would it just bolt into place?? ANy help would be awesome

Well, for the headlights would be no problem, but for the newer grill you would also need the newer front bumper. It dips in the middle to accommodate the grill. Or you would have to cut off the bottom of the grill. Maybe section it if you are ambitious and can work with fiberglass.

Would u happen to know if the newer front bumper bolts right on or would that have to be customized as well?

The easiest/cheapest way to add the new style headlights is to measure and cut the ends of your current cross bar. Add the new lights and the grille should pop into place. No need to change bumpers :thumbsup:

if im not mistaken... wouldnt your 2008 already have the newer style grille without the long crossbar that extends into the headlights?

I didnt know much about the body of the TB when i purchased it........if I knoew the 08 LT had the newer bumper/grill I wouldnt have purchased the LS. Someone even scared me into thinking that it wasnt an 08, that the VIN was swapped........then along came this forum and made my day a lot easier lol

He has the LS. The new front end only comes on the LT.
