Upgrading Front end of 06 to 12?

Was wondering if it was easy or even a way to buy a new 12 grill and install in my 06? I like the look of the new grills and kinda want to do this if it isn't too hard. Wondering if anyone has done this or knows if it is even possible?...

You have to replace the entire front clip: hood,fenders,bumper etc. it isn't a straight grille swap.

With enough money, sure... but bumper, lights, hood (I hear) and possibly fenders (not sure if light cut-out match).

Define "isn't much"

Best price for a genuine Toyota color matched 2008 grille is $200.
Headlights are $200+ each.
Hood, fenders, bumper cover, underpinnings?

You're looking at somewhere between $2k and $3k.
