Default Roush Front Bumper or not?

Group,

Had an encounter with a groundhog and took out my Fang Chin Spoiler back in May. I re- fiberglassed it and repainted but now I am seeing spider cracks in the area adjacent to the damage. I was thinking of dumping the V6 front end for a Roush front bumper and a Billit GT grill. Thoughts on this and how hard is it to change out the bumper cover?

Thanks

Changing the bumper isn't hard really.
You will need the GT upper grille as the V6 one is different and that means you'll need fog lights as well.
Most importantly...do Roush still makes that bumper for your body style?

So far from American Muscle it is still available: http://www.americanmuscle.com/roush-...scia-0509.html Yes I have to get grill and headlight switch, the bumper comes with the fogs.

Did a bit more research today on the fog conversion. My 07 did not have the pony package so from what the parts guy at the dealer told me that the wiring harness does not have the hookup for the fogs. I really don't want to "rig it" but a new wiring harness is over 300.00 What have others done? Any advise would be helpful. I would really like to use the factory dash light switch to power the fogs.
Thanks in advance.

Update: I pulled the trigger on the Roush Front end. It will arrive next Monday. I also found on flee-bay a harness and switch combo package that should do just fine for less than 1/2 the Ford OEM price for just the harness.

OK been debating on upgrading the marker/headlights. I like chrome so I was considering these. I would love to see a vista blue with the chrome headlight so I can see them first...

Your gonna love that Roush bumper kit. It totally changes the front end of the car to something so much more aggresive and nice. Those lights will look good with that grille you got too.
