    Toyota part #'s arent available yet online, but I believe all you need is, headlights, lower headlight valance, bumper, grille, hood.

    Yes it has been done, there were pics posted up I want to say around september of a 2007 that had the '12 front end on it. It was a sponsor truck with a skull candy vinyl wrap on it. If I find the pics of it I will post them here.

    *EDIT* here is the thread of the truck I mentioned. Once again to be clear this is an 07 with the 12 front end!

    i mean anything is possible if you have the money. my guess would be you would just need to get the hood, bumper, grille, and headlights oh and possibly front fenders

    There was a thread recently from a guy who did it, cost was about 3k if I remeber correctly . Not sure if that included the paint work.

    I think its a little pricey , your almost better off selling your truck and buying a 2012 or 13
