Hello to all. I own a 2002 winnebago journey 36l. I recently had an accident which damaged the front fiberglass lower panel below the windshield beyond repair and is in need of a replacement, approx $2500.00 just for the part. Does anyone have any idea if a lower panel from a 2004 model journey with the new european style headlamps will bolt on? I spoke with a service advisor at winnebago and he could not give me a definitive answer. Would like nice with the 2004 front end. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Muskie

Here's my guess--

If you replace the front cap on your Journey w/ a 2004+ front cap, it should bolt on directly.

I owned a 2000 Journey, and now own a 2007 Jorney, and from the outside they seem identical other than the front cap (primarily the headlights and fog lights).

I am sure it won't be cheap, but nor will your accident repair.

Let us know how you make out.

Send your question along with the serial # of your coach to or@winnebagoind.com. You should be able to get a definitive answer.

Ok. I finally got all my parts from Mobility RV who were very helpful in completing this project. The front cap did bolt right on. I had to modify the front frame support where the old headlights were without comprimising the integrity of the frame. Thanks for the replies as the new front end looks great. The cost wasnt that bad due to the fact that the front cap for the 2002 was approx $2500.00 compared to $1800.00 for the 2004
