      There is a local guy that has a 2001-ish F-150 with a 2005 and up front clip. I'll try and snap a pic. I think it looks pretty good.

      I like it, but it's unfortunate the 92-X's front fenders don't match the WRX/Impreza Sedan's rear fenders.

      All GD sedans have the larger boxed front and rear fenders, but all GD wagons (and the wagon-only 92-X) have narrow ones.

      pretty cool for show...

      I guesss these came stock like this in europe?

      the qx56 frontend looks alot better on the titan, already posted but this is much better.
      One frontend conversion i dont get is when a b6 wants to upgrade to a b7.

      Dare I say that could look really cool with a mildly staggered wheel set?

      I cant find any pics of it but I think it was in Road and track. 1980 Mustang with a 280 Mercedes front end and I think think it had the Mercedes turbo diesel in it.

      That does look good, get some QX rims and that would really round out the look.

      I guess as long as you made sure you had the same rolling diameter on the front and rear tires? Isn't it possible to damage your diffs otherwise? I can't really recall seeing any staggered Subarus that hadn't been converted to RWD.

      I know most manufacturers say to always use the same size wheels and tires on all 4 corners.
