09 convert to 15+ front fascia

So there is a lot of talk about changing the front fascia to the Hellcat look. Honestly, I don't necessarily need to go that far, and I personally might feel a little like I was up badging by doing that. However, I do REALLY like the 2015 front fascia over the 08-14 styles. The lines etc... feel much more sporty to me. I just finished paying off my '09 srt8 and honestly I just can't bring myself to go back into 10k+ debt when I have so many other things to tend to in other aspects of life.

With that said. Does anyone know if you can, and/or how easy it is to convert an 09 to a 15 front fascia? Any kind of thoughts on numbers?

Here are the headlights although not sure if they are plug and play.

It's going to require some work, it's not a simple plug and play.

You're going to have to get it painted too.



I'm going to assume that if you can't estimate this yourself you probably don't have the skills required for it, so you'd have a more accurate estimate of the work and price you'd be looking at by finding a reputable body shop and having them give you a quote.

The easiest way to do the front conversion ? Is to have an accident !!! That’s what I did.
Before the wreck,
The wreck,
After the wreck.

If that's too much work you could just upgrade the front lights


and rear lights to "kinda" look like a +2015.
